Take your skills a step further. This course focuses on controlling and manipulating natural light and composition in order to turn good images into outstanding ones. Through weekly assignments, in-class shooting, and the review of the work of the masters of photography, students will learn how to accurately control each shooting scene so to make the best possible shot, from documentary, through landscape to studio-type scenarios. This course is highly recommended before moving on to any more specialized course, such as portraiture, documentary or studio lighting. $305-$335.
** There is a 50% discount for students who completed Intro to Photography prior to June 2012. (?)
9 -Sessions: This version is highly recommended. Students will work on a series of photos that will be exhibited at PhotoManhattan on class 9. You can view previous exhibits here.
5-Sessions: This accelerated version consists of 2.5 to 3 hours classes. Great for those of you with limited time.
4-Sessions: Consisting of 4 hour classes, this is the most hands on option; there is more in-class shooting.
Note: Should the assigned instructor become suddenly unavailable, we'll allocate a substitute instructor
"Had a great experience in the 9 week class. Wonderful and accomplished teacher-Carla- and a syllabus that covered just enough but not too much. Highly recommend. Also a great value. I took a 1day course at ICP which was double the price of the 9 week course at photomanhattan and learned absolutely nothing!!! Take this course!" Jen D. Yelp. 7/14/13
"Great instructors and staff who are genuinely interested in helping you become a better photographer. I took the 9-week introductory digital photography course and could not be happier with it. In addition to in-depth lectures of the camera's capabilities, the instructors also devoted time to composition, effects, editing, and more. Also, since they offer a lot of courses, it was easy to take make-up classes with other groups when I couldn't make it to my scheduled one. I look forward to taking the next level class when my schedule allows." Jeni K. Yelp. 5/18/13
