Join a team of expert photographers for an intensive 3-day photography workshop to capture the sights and attractions that make NYC so legendary.
Your 3-day photo “boot camp” begins with a “Nuts and Bolts session” in which you’ll learn basic photography skills and how to best utilize your camera’s settings, such as aperture and shutter speed. Afterward you’ll move on to a series of daytime and nighttime shooting sessions.
Photograph the Brooklyn Bridge during both day and at night, the Manhattan skyline in the evening from both the Top of the Rock and Brooklyn, several famous locations in Central Park and such additional landmarks as the Flat Iron Building, Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall, Wall Street, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Grand Central Terminal, Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, Times Square and the New York Public Library.
Snap pics of new and old structures, taxi cabs and subways and the people and places that represent Manhattan’s immigrant history with visits to both Chinatown and the Lower East Side. Discover the best lens to choose for a particular subject matter, how to use your flash, working with long exposures and more.
Expect to be away from your hotel 12-13 hours each day and shooting 6-9 hours. You will walk approximately 3 to 4 miles a day and take more than 250 pictures daily. While it’s a rigorous schedule with minimal downtime, you will leave NYC with some amazing photos and incredible memories of NYC icons and the new skills to capture similar future photos on your own.
This Manhattan “photo boot camp” is not for the faint of heart and can be exhausting. Still, this is a unique and worthwhile opportunity to not only photograph NYC, but to truly experience the Big Apple.
