Join our photo lessons in Greektown, which is one of the excellent locales in the rotation of many Detriot Venus that offer terrific photo opportunities.
Greektown is an historic neighborhood located just northeast of downtown Detroit. It was first settled by German immigrants in the 1830’s as a primarily residential area. In the early 20th century, a majority of the German residents moved to different areas of the city and Greek immigrants moved in, establishing a number of businesses that are still flourishing today. Greektown is now one of Detroit’s premier commercial and entertainment districts.
Greektown is one of the best places in Detroit to indulge in a few solid hours of people-watching. People from all walks of life come to Greektown to enjoy the food, shopping, and casino – making this an excellent place for street portrait photography on a nice day.
Learn more about architectural photography as you make images that showcase the unique buildings and urban details in and around Greektown. Push your boundaries as you experiment with different camera angles – get down low and point your camera skywards as you photograph the architecture to give it a heightened sense of power and strength. Investigate the concept of leading lines and how they can influence a viewer’s perception of a photograph.
Please bring your fully charged digital camera, an extra charged battery (if you have one,) and any other photographic equipment you would like to use during the class. Please dress for the weather and wear your most comfortable shoes.
