Join Melissa Goodwin, photographer and founder of Girl Gotta Hike for a photo walk/urban hike from Manhattan to Brooklyn, walking over the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn Bridge Park. One focus of this walk will be on capturing images that highlight the Bridge’s unique industrial structure and how Brooklyn Bridge Park helps bring nature into the cityscape. Photography how-to’s and topics will include basic camera settings, framing and composition and subject selection. All skill levels welcome. Meet outside the Brooklyn Bridge City Hall 4/5/6 Subway station on Center Street in Manhattan and end at Pier 1 on Brooklyn Bridge Park. Optional meet up afterword with other OutdoorFest participants for drinks at Superfine in DUMBO.
