A Toronto Group Shot

flattr this!

I often make the group shot part of the actual workshop as opposed to it just being an add-on. This way the group can see the photo from inception to completion and be part of the process rather than just having their picture taken. The theme was urban, so we decided to use a parking garage as our set.

This time we’ve ended up with a behind-the-scenes iPhone shot taken by Sean Galbraith:

and the actual group shot from the front:

Berlin in Pictures

flattr this!

I spent the last three days shooting in Berlin together with my friend Shak. We hit a lot of interesting – sometimes even eerie – locations and what can I say? It was awesome! Here are a few of the pictures, follow the links to see more:

Berlin Neon – on the way home one night, I noticed how the red neon signs contrasted with the deep blue sky. Just a few shots, but I like them.

Berlin Stasizentrale – this is the headquarters of the former east German secret service that spied on the east German people.

Berlin Alexanderplatz – one of the important squares in the former eastern part of Berlin, I’ve been there for the first time back in 1987 and I love the TV tower.

Berlin Concrete – the Berlin Holocaust Memorial is a rather recent addition to Berlin. Planned by Peter Eisenmann, it features 2711 concrete blocks and I could spend hours exploring what the light does to the shapes and angles.
