“Focus”ing on the “development” of professional photography skills, students enrolled in this class will have the unique opportunity to contextualize their portfolios with impeccable shots from New York City! Students in this class will learn about essential photography elements including camera settings, light and exposure, composition, and digital enhancement with custom and personalized instruction for photographers of any skill level. Working 1-on-1 with a team of professionals, students will apply their newfound skills via customized photoshoots in the city.  Practice nighttime photography under the neon lights of Times Square.  Work on your still motion techniques in the hustle and bustle of Chinatown.  Zoom-in for a close up of Lady Liberty and expand your photography horizons with wide-angle shots of the NYC skyline from the top of the Rockefeller Center!  Capture the lush green landscape of Central Park along with the candid shots of the sprawling urban jungle that is the NYC subway system.  And of course, no trip to Broadway would be complete without customized headshots!  By the end of this week, students will have truly “captured” the essence of photography in NYC and gained a greater appreciation of the people and places from this major metropolitan city
