Here is Where | Long Island, New York Street Photography

For the past month I have been taking an awesome class called "Here is Where: Photographing the World Around You" from Lauren Mitchell (check her out!) at Beyond the Wanderlust. The class has gotten me out of the house, photographing my neighborhood, and looking at the same old boring sights in a new way. Who knew a shadow from a tree could be so interesting?? Not only did the class cover street photography, but also how to incorporate the style of street photography into your personal photographs. I am excited to keep shooting this way, incorporating environment and recording what my kids' childhood looked like. I think they will be happy to be able to look back at "their history" and at what their world looked like when they were small.

Here are some photographs that I took during class:
