What You'll Get
Photographers swiftly capture what sluggish painters cannot, such as the sparkle of a fleeting smile, the identity of a media-shy superhero, or the split second a peregrine falcon breaks the sound barrier. Attain photographic know-how with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $49 for a three-hour Composition in the Field photography workshop for one (a $99 value)
- $89 for the above workshop for two (a $198 value)
- $35 for a three-hour Intro to Digital Cameras workshop with added demo (a $75 value)
Composition in the Field workshops equip students with the skills to evoke surprising imagery from everyday surroundings. During each indoor or open-air outing, an experienced photographer guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces. In past courses, students have captured images of the complex architecture and stained-glass fixtures of Eldridge Street Synagogue, the streets of Chinatown, the hustle and bustle of Grand Central Terminal, and the colorful foliage of Central Park. Participants should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of their picturesque locale.
Designed for novice photographers who have just bought or are considering buying a digital SLR or digital point-and-shoot camera, the Intro to Digital Cameras workshop covers the basic elements of both camera styles. Students will learn the mechanics behind the light-controlling aperture on their SLR camera, or find the ideal setting for their point-and-shoot models. The workshop concludes with a demo still life and live-model shoot that lets students apply the shutter knowledge and synonyms for “cheese” they’ve just learned in a practical setting.
Composition workshops are held Saturday and Sunday at various times and locations, and digital-camera intro courses are held Sunday at B & H Photo, and both courses are taught by a team of professional photographers. Check out the full schedule for more information.
