12-Week Digital Photography Workshop

12-Week Digital Photography Workshop Overview


The objective of the 12-week photography workshop is to develop core photography skills through the integration of technical study, a wide variety of shooting assignments, and aesthetic and technical analysis.

As NYFA photography workshop students master core elements of the craft through constant shooting, editing, and critique, they are immersed in master works across every genre in the history of the medium. Students also shoot assignments in multiple genres, including fine art, documentary, fashion, street photography, studio and location portraiture, editorial, advertising, and other commercial styles.

Location and studio lighting will also be covered in the workshop, including the use of multiple inexpensive off-camera battery powered strobes and collapsible reflector systems to achieve big-light results, professional studio power pack and head strobe systems, softboxes, ring lights, diffusers, flags, gobos, grip hardware, and more.

NYFA’s 12-Week Evening Digital Photography Workshop will thoroughly demystify the technical intricacies of the medium, as expert faculty guide students in exploring components of exposure, selecting lenses, mastering depth of field, transforming subjects through the use of shutter speed, and the unlimited possibilities of visual style through digital darkroom tools — including RAW processing, adjustment layers, transformations, retouching, and basic compositing using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

Please note:
All students are required to bring with them to the photography workshops a digital camera with manual exposure control.
