About This Class

Join award-winning feature photographer Ben Lowy to tell stories with the images you make. In this 45-minute class, Ben ventures out around the New York City subway to show what equipment he uses, the best ways to approach composition, and how to capture life as it happens (without altering its natural rhythm). This series of lessons equips you to create a photo story or photo essay of your own, and breaks down the difference between the two formats. Perfect for beginner and advanced photographers – you’ll find new ways to push the envelope and do something new. Every day, there’s always a new way to see the world.
