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.
Being a photographer on assignment, you sometimes get sent to far-flung reaches of the Earth, or your neighborhood, on a mission to tell the story, or document what is happening, or simply to "bring back something I can use". Whether you have an interest in raw photojournalism, travel photography, street style blogs or environmental portraits, more often than not you'll be finding yourself on location.
Some topics we'll be covering:
- Understanding your environment and maximizing it
- Photographing people you don't know (yet)
- How a scene can change depending on the time of day
- Responding creatively to a brief
- Being fearless and trying new things
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.
