New York at Dusk
Wednesdays: 6 - 8:30 pm
5 Sessions: 5/14, 5/21, 5/28, 6/11 & 6/18

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. Pre-requisite: Basic camera, editing and printing skills

The Essentials of Flash Photography
Thursdays: 10:30 - 1:00
5 Sessions: 5/15, 5/22, 5/29, 6/12 & 6/19

Whether you've taken other lighting classes or you've always been daunted by the idea of using a flash, this workshop will get you over the hurdle. You will not only gain mastery of the technical aspects, you will learn to see light in a brand new, exciting way. At some point everyone has to use an on camera flash, so we will begin with the basics of TTL, bouncing and diffusing. Then we'll explore the huge range of possibilities that off camera flash affords - blending it with ambient light and using basic light modifiers. At the end of this workshop the use of flash will be demystified, and you'll know how great a flash can make your images look. Pre-requisite: Lightroom proficiency

Urban Landscape - Part 1 - A Walk in the Park
Thursdays: 3-6 pm
5 Sessions: 5/15, 5/22, 5/29, 6/12 & 6/19

In this workshop, the first of a series of landscape/cityscape classes, we will be exploring New York City parks. After an endless winter, what better way to see the city? Not only is it an opportunity to explore more traditional landscape photography, it's also an opportunity to photograph people and the interplay of architecture with greenery. There will be 4 on location shoots and an intermediary editing and technical session. Pre-requisite: Basic camera, editing and printing skills
