This past Sunday I attended an extraordinary event presented by Slow Travel Berlin in the heart of Kreuzberg. The Celebration of Culture, Creativity and Cuisine offered various complimentary activities and workshops, from sewing to photography. As you can imagine, the photography workshop instantly piqued my interest.
The workshop was presented by Australian photographer Katrina James. After spending a few hours stalking her website, I knew I was in safe hands. This girl knew her shit! Katrina usually host 4 hour private mentor sessions for folks interested in taking their craft to the next level. Her tailored course cost 250 Euro, but on this afternoon she donated her time and talent in the spirit of creativity.
Seven people signed up for her photography workshop that started at noon, but seeing how this is Berlin, I was the ONLY person who showed up. (Sound familiar?) Although it was highly inconsiderate of the other participants to bail, it was awesome for me. I got to spend an hour and a half picking the brain of an amazing photographer.
Here are my favorite pictures from our stroll around Kreuzberg.
I still have a long way to go in terms of composition and learning how to “speak” to my camera. Katrina was extremely knowledgeable and offered so much insight into how to frame the stories I want to tell with my pictures. Thanks Katrina and a big shout out to Slow Travel Berlin for organizing a wonderful day!
So what do you guys think?
Any observations or critiques on the photos?
I really would appreciate the feedback!
