What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:This is not a how-to, step-by-step kind of workshop. It's designed to provide stimulus and fresh challenges to the emerging shooter, as well as critical feedback and group discussion on concept and execution while on location.
Who should take this class: Those who have an interest in documentary photography, photojournalism, travel photography, street style blogs or environmental portraits
What you will learn: Whether the location is unfamiliar to you or part of your daily routine, this is an opportunity to learn how to respond to your surroundings through the eye of the camera. Through guided but loose assignments you will learn to train your eye and your lens on the details surrounding you. Much as a scavenger hunt can spur creativity and heightened awareness you'll discover ways to apply your personal vision within this given environment.
We'll be on location for the entire duration of Field Guide III. Meeting locations (within the 5 boroughs) will be disclosed at least two days before class. Instructors will hand out assignments and a map of the area, as well as some background details, and students will get to work:
- Understanding your environment and maximizing it
- Photographing people you don't know (yet)
- How a scene can change depending on the time of day
- Being fearless and trying new things
Prerequisites - Field Guide III: On Location is not for beginners. If you are not already comfortable and proficient with controlling exposure through aperture / shutter speed / ISO, color (white balance), motion blur and the like, please consider taking Field Guide I and/or Field Guide II first, or Digital Photo I: The Basics.
This course is not for beginners. If you are not already comfortable and proficient with controlling exposure through aperture / shutter speed / ISO, color (white balance), motion blur and the like, please consider taking Field Guide I first.
Students will be on location for virtually the entire duration of this course. We'll disclose the meeting location (within the 5 boroughs, of course) two days before the start of the Field Guide. Instructors will hand out assignments and a map of the area, as well as some background details, and students will get to work.
Class will meet rain or shine, so be prepared and dress appropriately. We'll show you how to weatherproof your camera using a simple ziplock bag. A DSLR is preferred but not required. Once you're registered, you'll receive detailed instructions on meeting time, location and what additionally, if anything, to bring.
Refund & Cancellation PolicyTransferring to Another Session
Because space is limited and classes often fill up, students cancelling class last minute may prevent other students from signing up for that session. For this reason, we require that students who need to reschedule their registration within 72 hours prior to the class scheduled start time will be required to provide a 25% re-registration fee to transfer to another session.
We are here to guide you through class selection to make sure you benefit from our courses, so feel free to contact us for any questions regarding class selection, registration issues, or if you need to transfer to a different session.
While we encourage you to make every effort to attend your registered class, we understand if your situation changes unexpectedly. Unfortunately, the same situation applies with our limited capacity. Therefore, students who need to cancel their registration for whatever reason within 72 hours prior to class scheduled start time will be also be assessed a 25% cancellation fee from any refund requested.
We really appreciate when people let us know they can't make a class, even if it's last minute. In some cases there may be a student on the waiting list that we can offer that seat to. No-shows are rather unhelpful for this cause, and so we charge a 50% fee* to transfer or refund a registration in the situation of a no-call no-show.
Also, please note:
- Gift certificates are non-refundable
- Credits, promotional discounts, or any special arrangements will be one time per individual.
Course Cancellation by BKC.
- If less than 4 people are enrolled in a course we will cancel that class and offer students a full refund of the amount paid or a credit towards a new course within a month of the canceled course start date.
- BKC reserves the right to change instructors if needed without prior notice.
- If a class is cancelled because of weather conditions or illness of an instructor, BKC will schedule a make up session.
