photo classes

Grab a good pair of shoes, some snacks, and your favorite camera and join the group as we make make our way from Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village, up Broadway to Union Square Park, and then on to Madison Square Park. These historic parks are compelling in their own right, but the street routes too  will allow us a chance to engage in some serious street photography and encounters with city architecture.

We'll be looking for photographs of people in real situations - jazz musicians busking outdoors, a worker making fresh pizza, as seen through a neighborhood store window, book lovers scouting titles at the Strand Book Store,  the masses of pedestrians crisscrossing at traffic intersections - and the diverse shapes of the city: ornate buildings, tall statues, yellow cabs and bicycles, reflections in glass, handwritten menu boards, and the meandering walkways of city parks.

As we walk the approximately one-and-half-mile route, I'm going to share with you some specific ways to up the quality of your photography - techniques you can use when traveling, visiting museums, hiking in the woods, and photographing family and friends.

But technique aside, there's a philosophy to the Art of Photography. I'll be revealing some of mine and you can choose what to incorporate into your own approach. As a photographer and teacher, I want you to think differently the next time you head out with your camera - and I want us to discover more of this city, on foot and in all seasons. Walk Manhattan 4 is part of a series of Manhattan photo walks that I lead (see Walk Manhattan 1, Walk Manhattan 2, and Walk Manhattan 3 itineraries). Sign up for my class mailing list to hear about new dates for workshops and photo outings.

Hope you can join us!
