What should I expect?
We will be exploring the Central Park and the West Side. We will begin by reviewing basic camera settings and then work together to create great shots.
This photography walk is designed to give all participants the opportunity to shoot and capture beautiful cityscapes. We will guide you through different photography techniques, and camera settings. We will also spend a good amount of time on photo composition and developing your own style so your photos will tell your story to the viewer.
What should I bring?
Upon signing up we will send everyone a detailed equipment and material list. The basic gear everyone should have is a digital SLR camera body, tripod and a variety of lens.
We will be doing some walking so it is advised for you to dress in layers and wear proper footwear.
Since this is a night photography workshop we recommend bringing a remote shutter release, a head lamp and any light painting tools.
We also recommend bringing a water and snack to stay hydrated and happy.
