About This Class

Use your camera for discovery! This new one-hour class with photographer Dan Rubin takes you on an exciting scavenger hunt through NYC as he reveals 5 favorite photo styles and editing tips — plus hints for iPhone, DSLR, and film cameras alike. Whether you capture your city, hometown, or an upcoming exotic vacation, photograph a place with fresh eyes.

The camera is a tool for capturing memories, and when used thoughtfully, it can also be a way to connect with places and people on a deeper level. This class is a scavenger hunt to capture the 5 essential, iconic photo styles that Dan uses on assignment:

  • Bird’s Eye View
  • Off the Beaten Path
  • Middle of the Road
  • Signs of Life
  • Iconic Postcard

You’ll see examples of Dan’s work in all of these styles for inspiration, learn some light editing tips for that final polish, and then you'll capture your own shots using the prompts as a guide.

This class is perfect for amateur photographers looking for camera tips, intermediate photographers looking for creative prompts, and even pros seeking inspiration.

Excellent Skillshare class! Dan does an amazing job at teaching you how to better appreciate places and travel, through the lens of photography and the way you see and edit your photos. He's great to listen to, and keeps every video class concise, yet full of information and interest. Highly recommend this class.
