|Any visitor who's
walked the High Line knows that the
array of architecture and views of both
city and waterside are unique. Located
on the West
Side of Manhattan, the park
exists on a historic freight
rail track built in the 30's, as
part of an effort to get
dangerous train traffic off the
streets of the city.
The High Line path runs one mile and the
views change along the way, presenting a
range of modern
and early architectural
constructions, river vantage points,
advertising billboards and signage,
street scenes observed from above, the
High Line's plant life - perennials,
grasses, shrubs and trees - and the
pedestrian traffic itself.
As we walk
the length of NYC's "park in the sky," I'm going
to point out many photographic opportunities and
address the challenges of composition, how to
use available light, photographing people in
public spaces, and other techniques you can use
anywhere you take your camera.
Photographing the High Line is one of a series
of NYC area classes that I teach. See the entire
schedule and sign up for
my class mailing list to hear about
new dates for workshops and photo outings.
Hope you can join us!
