Before photography, the only way people could preserve their most treasured memories was by forcing everyone around them to stand completely still for days at a time. Master the gratifying art of snapping pictures with today's deal: for $40, you get one Intermediate Nuts & Bolts workshop from New York City Photo Safari (an $80 value).
Make a point to gather the basic supplies before the session, such as your camera (DSLR or small point-and-shoot), memory cards, and any other essentials. This workshop is geared toward intermediate-level photographers looking for a better understanding of white balance, file formats, color space, depth of field, flash, and how to capture a vampire on film. Each two-hour, small-group safari workshop offers plenty of hands-on experience and advice for understanding and remedying persistent problems in your photography.
Take your travel photos from snapshots to shots worthy of snapping at the next photography slam with advice and knowledge-building exploration of concepts such as white balance, color space, depth of field, and flash. The workshop will help troubleshoot photography's many challenges, such as how to compensate for lighting conditions and how to frame a subject that can't fit entirely in a frame, such as up-close architecture or subjects of "yo mamma" jokes. Check the calendar for availability, and call ahead to schedule a spot in the workshop.
This is not a shooting safari, but rather a seminar on digital-photography issues.
Past customers rave about the photography workshops at New York City Photo Safari. Here's what they are saying in online testimonials:
- Zim has brought to my amateur photography a wonderful touch of art, understanding and fun...In the span of 3 hours wandering the New York city jungle she opened my eyes to things i had looked at but not seen in 40 years of photo taking. it was great fun and most satisfying. Great way to see the city with new eyes! – Lorne A.
- I went into my photosafari [sic] not knowing much about my camera or what it was capable of...I learned how to find shots with my eyes and actually translate them into a photo. – Meghan L.
- The instructor went over some basics that really helped me understand my camera better. Then there were lots of chances to put those tips into practice, with individual 'assignments' so even if there are people at different levels of experience in a group, everybody can get something out of it. – Courtney L.
