New York at twilight is a study in contrasts. Changing conditions of light and weather interact with architecture to build and dismantle an endless series of twilight cities, each hinting at pleasure and mystery. Through field trips and class sessions, students explore this shifting scene, developing their powers of observation and photographic techniques. Field trips explore the contrasts between obscure urban spaces (warehouses and industrial zones) and urban icons such as the Flatiron Building and the Washington Square Arch. Each student creates a new body of work that addresses the paradoxical identities of the city. Students may work in digital media or film (black & white or color).

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.
