Coney Island Street Photography Workshop

Yes, the Coney Island Mermaid Parade is fabulous for street photography! Coney Island is also great for street photography the rest of the year! Especially in the Summer! I have an upcoming street photography workshop in Coney Island on 9 July with only a couple spaces still available and you can register on my site.

Happy Summer!

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is an annual event with a 35 year history. It is a celebration on the Summer Solstice. You’ll see amazing costumes and a festive atmosphere. It is my 10th year of photographing it! You can see some of my photos from previous years at https://www.leannestaples.com/coney-island-mermaid-parade/

Mermaids in Brooklyn

As parades go, the Mermaid Parade is my favorite of all NYC parades. As street photography goes, I tend to like candid shots, capturing human expression that is unposed and undirected. And I tend to prefer b&w.
