Capturing the essence of a neighborhood reveals its true personality. This class consists of shooting in various neighborhoods –NoLita, Chinatown, the Lower East Side and Bushwick. The course guides students in making images that focus on the people, architecture and subtle details of each area. Students seek out aspects that pique their interest –from the structure of the buildings to the people– creating their own visual record of the neighborhoods. Lessons on framing, depth of field, lighting and composition happen on location, offering students the essential elements to create dynamic photographs. This course is limited to 12 students.

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.
