Photographing NYC: Through the Mind's Eye and the Camera Lens

Whether you’ve already worked in photography and love it or are a complete beginner, New York City offers great inspiration. You will find visual stimuli 24/7 in the city that never sleeps. The sights, smells, sounds, and people are sure to inspire you and to provide you with a new way of looking at things. Each morning, visit sites around the City—including a ride on the Staten Island Ferry—while creating a digital image bank of your work. Meet and mingle with students from across the region and the country, and share your ideas while developing your own photographic style. Spend afternoons exploring what goes into taking great photos—color and composition, form and content, and emotional resonance in the use of atmosphere and exposure—and acquiring technical aptitude in digital photography. Become familiar with digital photography, including the technical use of a digital camera; basic art terms and meanings; manipulation of elements such as color, composition, and form; and introductory skills in photo editing.
