Documentary photographer & director Doug Menuez once stood at the North Pole, crossed the Sahara, had tea with Stalin's daughter and held a chunk of Einstein's brain.
Nailing that perfect moment that combines beautiful light and a graphic composition with human emotion is a rush like nothing else. It feels like a miracle, but luck favors the prepared.
On this Photo Walk, Doug Menuez will share how he combines his documentary techniques with a deliberate zen mindfulness that allows him to enter a zone of hyper-awareness and concentration. He’ll also share his philosophy about respecting his subjects, discussing the fine line between telling their stories and exploiting them.
Then, he’ll discuss choosing the right equipment and technical issues. Street photography brings a special kind of joy that involves embracing the mystery of life, especially in New York City.
