New York is surrounded by water: harbors, marshes, rivers, and streams. In recent years, the waterfronts of Manhattan and Brooklyn have become accessible, exciting, and crowded. This field class travels to some of the city's less developed waterfront areas. Students have the opportunity to photograph everything from aging factories to migrating birds, and from grand vistas to intimate byways -- from the Bronx River to Jamaica Bay. This is a great opportunity to see New York's edges before global warming forever changes them.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
