A professional photographer whose work has been published in The New York Times and GQ, JP Pullos leads students through the inner workings of their cameras, teaching them to capture the city’s charms on location. A two-hour Holiday Lights class teaches exposure, aperture, and shutter speed while capturing shots of Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue. As people skate, sing, and shop, students capture artistically framed moments of Christmas-tree awe, glittering shop windows, and curiously sentient snowmen. Alternatively, students can master nighttime landscapes with a Long Exposure class at sunset in Central Park. Nocturnal shutterbugs learn to adjust camera functions and capture brilliant images in spite of the darkness. JP encourages his students to bring flashlights to play with long-exposure light painting and tripods, though he'll also delve into camera stabilization without a tripod. For the Holiday Lights class, cameras of any variety are welcome at each class, including point-and-shoot and SLR, but for the Long Exposure class, it is recommended to bring a camera in which the shutter speed and aperture can be manually set.
