WORKSHOP DATE: 12/01/2016 – 12/04/2016
With skyscrapers as far as the eye can see, richly colored alleyways, and the frantic hustle of life in the street, New York City offers photographers boundless opportunities. We’ll capture the magical skyline, catch the sunset from Rockefeller Center, photograph the iconic Flat Iron Building, and much more. After each excursion we’ll head to our classroom to learn about the latest in processing techniques, exposure, lighting, and composition.
This workshop is led by 2 award winning photographers Edin Chavez and Cliff Baise and is designed for all skill levels. This is for any photographer who is interested in improving their skills in many areas of digital photography and post processing, all while having fun in a small relaxed group of like-minded folks.
