Photo Walk | Mina Zayed

In honor of the 4th anniversary of Warehouse421, we’ve designed a photo walk in appreciation of its home: Mina Zayed, exploring how to incorporate the lines and shadows of an industrial area into your photographs, as well as capturing the liveliness of the surrounding markets.

What's Covered

Perched upon the boundary of Mina Zayed port, Warehouse421 sits between an industrial area of warehouses, which set the scene for sleek, yet rugged portraiture, and several of Abu Dhabi’s down-to-earth markets, including the fish market, date market, and vegetable market.

 

In this photo walk, you’ll receive hands on guidance from your photography instructor and guide, offering tips on framing, natural light photography, and how to take more creative control over your camera. In addition, as you peruse the markets in the area, you’ll learn best practice to approach strangers in public, shooting both candid and posed shots that represent a true reflection of daily life in Abu Dhabi.
