Magic Moments – A Photography Workshop at Machne Yehuda Market
Unforgettable moments, from a different angle. The Machne Yehuda Market is one of the most photogenic locations in Jerusalem. The colorful stalls, the varied human mosaic and the unique atmosphere come together to create magic moments that simply must be captured on film. Even the voices, the scents and the tastes are caught through the lens and bring the timeless experience to life.
Join us for a fun photography workshop, instructed by a professional, who will lead us through the stalls and alleys, showing us how to capture the market’s ambiance and human surrounding using imagery and photography language. All of that, while using daily photography aids (such as smartphones and generic cameras) and some that are more advanced. We’ll open the workshop with a meet-and-greet where we will get a short review of the history and local atmosphere of the market, get to know advanced features on our photography devices and learn how to make the best out of them and reach wonderful results.
We’ll step into the market and complete creative and inspiring photography tasks, focusing on various topics, such as inter-personal relations, architecture, new vs. old, scents, colors and flavors. In between shots, we will discover tips that will help us take pictures like the pros do: light and shade, types of lights, speed and freeze frame and composition in urban and portrait photography. Before we finish, we’ll review the breathtaking experience, upload great photos to our Story and get important tips, to improve and implement our photography skills.
