NYC Dramatic Late Afternoon to Twilight Photo Workshop

  • Jacob Mould Fountain, City Hall Park 43 Park Row New York, NY, 10038 United States (map)

On this unique photo workshop, we'll be photographing in Manhattan's Civic Center area in late-afternoon light, then subway to Brooklyn to take stunning sunset and twilight photos of the Lower Manhattan skyline. 

I’m limiting the number of people who can attend, so that I can spend time with each of you to help with anything you need in getting really compelling images of the sites that we visit along the way. That can range from basic photo or camera help to assistance with composition and advanced techniques, as well as tripod technique for the Brooklyn nighttime segment. 

Also, as an added value, you'll be able to send me your photos (or links to them) from this workshop for evaluation and feedback. I'll make comments and suggestions, and in many cases, do some photo editing on your photos to demonstrate how to make a good image even better. 


We'll start in Foley Square in the Civic Center. Fans of shows like "Law & Order" and "Blue Bloods" will recognize it immediately from the iconic New York County Courthouse and other nearby buildings. If you're a fan of the new TV show, "For the People," you'll also recognize the Federal Courthouse next door. We'll also see and photograph the Municipal Building, City Hall Park, the Woolworth Building, and an amazing "new" interior nearby that will surprise and delight you. 

About an hour before sundown, we'll take a short subway ride to Brooklyn, where we'll photograph along Brooklyn Bridge Park during the last half-hour or so of sunlight, through sunset, and well into twilight.

Bonus Time!

We will officially end the workshop in Brooklyn at 7:30pm, but if you are able to stay longer, I'll take you back to City Hall Park to help you make dramatic nighttime photos of the famous Jacob Wray Mould Fountain and the surrounding buildings. We'll go til about 8:30 or so.

You'll be sure to end up with some amazing images that you'll be proud to hang on your wall.
