Baltimore Photo Safaris: Full and Half Days

Baltimore: Workshops in Creativity through Perspective in Fells Point and Mount Vernon

Quick Details

Baltimore City workshops in Creativity through Perspective: Ever wonder why photos can look so different taken of the same subject? Here is your chance to learn the ins and outs of creative perspective.

A short drive from the Inner Harbor you will find two of Baltimore’s oldest neighborhoods – the National Registered Historic District of Fells Point and Mount Vernon. The morning portion of this safari will take you down the historic cobblestone streets of Fells Point and in the afternoon you will be able to see, compare and enjoy the fine French stylized architecture of Mount Vernon. You will begin to learn how to see a photograph with fresh eyes to generate a more powerful and diverse image, while photography some of the living history of Fells Point and Mount Vernon through its unique architecture and urban life. The dramatic architecture of these two neighborhoods is a perfect place to either start or perfect the way you compose a photograph using the concepts of a good composition, depth of field, exposure and point of view.

You will learn from professional photographer Eddie Arrossi what point of view is all about. He will show you how just by simply shooting at a different angle can turn that cluttered two-dimensional snapshot into a high impact 3-dimensional photograph that captures the feel of the subject

The safari will examine the effects of different lenses on your subjects. You will explore how the unusual storefronts along Fells Point Main Street, or the elegant doorways of Mount Vernon may be photographed and the impact you can create in your photographs. We will continue to walk down to the docks where you can discover how that ship in the harbor looks so far away with a 50mm lens but looks so close with a telephoto. Learn the importance of exposure and composition when using the different lenses.
