New York - Gradisca Restaurant


Join DPA instructor John Bentham on Sunday July 12, 2009 10am to 7pm for a day of shooting at Gradisca Italian Restaurant. The focus of the workshop will be location lighting, portraits, environmental portraits and food shooting. John will give lessons on how to walk into a room and find the shot. How to position your subjects and light quickly but effectively. We will shoot the chef and staff prepping in the kitchen, knives, sage and parmesan flying. Strobe lighting will be provided. Workshop begins at 10am, restaurant location shoot begins at 2pm. We will then eat the food we shoot. Following a highly successful restaurant photo workshop on the Lower East Side, John Bentham once again provides Advanced Digital Photo Academy photography students with an opportunity to Shoot it and Eat it. This time in historic Greenwich Village shooting at Gradisca, an authentic Italian restaurant (and one of Johns favorite restaurants). Named after the convivial character in the Fellini movie, Aamaracord, Gradisca first opened in 2000. Using only the freshest ingredients and serving only homemade pastas, owner Massimo Gateano, and chef Matteo Boglione, ensure that every meal that leaves their kitchen expresses the soul of authentic Italian cooking. You can often see Mama making the pasta by hand before, and during dinner, she never stops.
