NYC: Heart of the Park (Central Park)

BONUS! All participants will receive a gift card worth $25 towards prints and other photo products at Nations Photo Lab 

Saturday in the Park! What could be better…except a Photo Workshop with popular photo tour leader and Central Park maven Steve Rosenbach!

Several people wanted to attend our previous Heart of the Park workshop, but we were sold out, so here's another chance! Register now to save your place!

This is a photo workshop that I carefully designed so as to get the maximum amount of great photo opportunities within about a 3 hour easy walk. 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. 

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. 

Our first stop will be Strawberry Fields, an intimate haven just inside the park set aside as a memorial to John Lennon. From there, we’ll circumnavigate The Lake to take advantage of panoramic views with the elegant skylines of Central Park West or Fifth Avenue in the background.

We’ll “get lost” in The Ramble, a bucolic, forested tract with a picturesque stream and rustic bridges where, for the moment, you can imagine that the city is far away.

Finally, we’ll arrive at Bethesda Terrace, an iconic, romantic plaza that you’ll recognize from countless movies. We’ll explore the Terrace from the grand sweep of its monumental staircases to the intricate carvings of honeybees and birds along its steps. 

All together, we'll see 30 unique and photogenic features in the heart of Central Park, and along the way, Steve will regale you with stories of the Park and the specific sites we'll visit. 

It will be a journey that will delight your sense of color, texture, and proportion as well as refresh your spirit.

NYC Dramatic Late Afternoon to Twilight Photo Workshop

BONUS! All participants will receive a gift card worth $25 towards prints and other photo products at Nations Photo Lab 

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. 

Itinerary 

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 quarter-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.

Five Minutes at F/8: A Long-Exposure Workshop

  • Governors Island National Monument (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY, LIMITED TO 6 PARTICIPANTS!... 
PRICE: $99/person

Click here to register and pay 

Here's an amazing opportunity to learn how to do long exposures under any conditions using neutral-density filter... and learn from THE expert - our own Sheldon Katz

Sheldon gets unbelievable effects by using neutral-density filters to afford long exposure times, often as much as 5 minutes or more. Clouds streak across the frame, still water turns to cotton candy, and fireworks explosions look like exotic flowers.  

We'll be photographing at Governors Island, with fantastic views of Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Statue of Liberty. Coming to our free Governors Island Photo Walk that day? Then afterwards, have some lunch from one of the many food vendors, and join us for this incredible photo workshop!

Sheldon will provide the neutral-density filters and adapters to fit your lens, and you will need to bring the following:

• A camera with a lens that has a filter diameter of 77mm or smaller.

• A tripod

• A remote shutter release.

But don't delay, this workshop is limited to only 6 participants, so RSVP and register right now!
