What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

Join us on this fast paced Photo Safari to explore some of New York City's most iconic buildings. Photograph Times Square, the Chrysler building, Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library. We'll show you the best vantage points to photograph these landmark buildings as you hone your photography skills. On this architectural photo tour you'll learn how to work with lines and angles to bring these buildings to life, as well as how to photograph architectural interiors and have a better understanding of white balance.

In the end you'll take home iconic pictures of New York City that you'll be proud to share. Note that Iconic NYC safaris scheduled in the afternoon take advantage of the sky's changing colors during the fading light of dusk, and conclude as the city lights come alive. (sunset times available here: NYC sunset timetable) This photography workshop is appropriate for all levels of photographic experience..

This safari covers a lot of ground, so put on your sneakers and be ready to move.

Meeting point: 
Midtown Manhattan (Please see your email for confirmation of exact location.)

This was my second class with Zim. As before, I learned a great deal key photography principles, I appreciated her healthy criticism (I'm a stark-raving beginner), her helpful suggestions, and I admired her persistence in keeping the group (4) on track. (She even oohed and ahhed sufficiently when I did get something close to right.) Zim's a pro, a good teacher and a good guide. I recommend the tour and Zim without qualification.

Good class and an instructor that is keen to both help you and push you to do better. You get good shoots with you back. Much more precise and focused than some other classes I've taken.
