On this unique photo workshop, we'll be photographing in Manhattan's Civic Center area in late-afternoon light, then take the PATH (subway) to Jersey City 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 Jersey City twilight 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 near 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, among other places, the Municipal Building, City Hall Park, the Woolworth Building, and the “Oculus” at the World Trade Center.
About an hour before sundown, we'll take a 5-minute subway ride to Exchange Place in Jersey City, where we'll photograph along the Hudson River during the last half-hour or so of sunlight, through sunset, and well into twilight.
You'll be sure to end up with some amazing images that you'll be proud to hang on your wall.
Note: Participants will need to purchase a Metrocard or SmartLink (Path) card for the ride to Jersey City. The cost is $2.75 each way.
