Behind The Scenes: Downtown LA Street Photography Workshop with Rinzi Ruiz and Student Photos

I am sad to say that I just had one of the last street photography workshops in Downtown LA for the near future. For those of you who don’t know, I will be moving to Michigan at the end of August to be with my girlfriend Cindy and support her with her academic career. Also have some good project ideas for shooting in Detroit as well!

Here is some of the behind-the-scenes footage of my recent street photography workshop with Rinzi Ruiz which was focused on projects. The 3-day workshop was short, but intense – and focused on making a project in Downtown LA. 3 days isn’t nearly enough time to work on a serious project, but was a strong foundation for all of the workshop attendees.

After Rinzi and I judged the workshop attendees projects, we decided that the work of Dan Manwaring was the winner- as his project was tightly edited, coherent, and told a lot about his character (he is a tough-looking guy with a soft heart). Runner-up was Darren Wong who shot a cliche topic (dogs) but did it from very unorthodox angles and created some fresh images.
