In this class, we'll have the challenge of shooting familiar places with a new approach. Have you ever used a tripod in Grand Central? We'll have tripod passes for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Grand Central Station. How does the Statue of Liberty look when you're really close to her? We'll find out. More importantly, we'll get beyond taking the familiar pictures, and that will translate to all the things we plan to shoot both at home and when we travel.
New York at Dusk
Tuesdays: 3:00 - 6:00 pm
5 Sessions: 5/12 - 6/9
When dusk and the night enfold New York, a door to a different and more magical world opens. The camera records surprising colors and juxtapositions; movement blurs and common place things unexpectedly change their shape. Shooting at night also presents a different set of challenges - exposure, tripod, flashlights and weather. In this workshop, we'll begin with a pop, meeting on location for our first shoot. After several shooting sessions we'll have a technical class at the studio, looking at the images we've shot, to discuss how to shoot and edit the images for their greatest potential. Then it's back out to capture the excitement of the evening.
