New York City Photo-Lab Program

New York City Photo-Lab is an experiential class that invites participants to develop and refine their visual composition skills, expand their sense of light, and improve their photographic practice in one of the world's most vibrant cities. Participants will develop a heightened sensitivity to their surroundings while photographing in a neighborhood within New York’s five boroughs. Discussions cover research, building confidence and trust, intention, feelings, illumination, camera operation, compositional tools, aesthetics, collaboration, improvisation, and effective workflow and editing. Students should come prepared with their own digital or analog cameras; all other materials will be provided.
