PHOTO CAFÉ (Free Event): Fairness & Visibility in the Industry

Our next Photo Café talk with Seeing Collective is coming up on Friday, May 24th (7pm – 9pm) at BKC on the topic of Fairness and Visibility. How can we encourage diversity and create equality within the photography industry? What are some ways to give underrepresented people a platform to share their stories and voice? These are just a couple questions that come to mind when thinking about fairness and visibility across the industry and we hope to broach this topic in our next discussion.

Field Guide: Grand Central Station

Majestic. Iconic. Historic. Many gushing words are used to describe Grand Central Station on East 42nd St.  As one of the last great living monuments to last 19th-century Beaux Arts architecture in the city, Grand Central is beloved by travelers, commuters and tourists alike.  But how do we best consider the keenly detailed light, the dramatic contrast in space, and the classically-articulated surfaces that make this station unlike any other?  Well, that's what we're going to find out.

5 Dollar Fridays: RAW vs JPG

The age-old question:  Should you shoot RAW or should you shoot JPG?  Well, first we gotta define what a RAW file is, and what a JPG is.  There are advantages for both.  What are they?  When would you choose one of the other?  What about all those different funky shapes and icons in my camera's JPG menu options?  How do I deal with RAW files and get the most out of them? Let's do a dive into some basic file mechanics and hopefully demystify this situation once and for all.

Washington Square Park is a New York staple, over the years home to many counterculture movements, outsiders, youth and artists.  From Civil War-era riots, to the Beats and the Punks, Washington Square has symbolized uprising and collective action.  Nowadays things have changed as new forces shape the area, and so as photographers it falls upon us to document the evolution of an iconic place.  Perhaps in the process we can find clues to what will be coming next.
