Program DescriptionProgram Name: 12-Week Evening Photography Workshop
In NYFA’s evening photography workshop, students learn the elements of photography through constant shooting, editing, and critique. Every week, students demystify the technical intricacies of the medium, guided by expert faculty who are active photographers working in their respective fields. During the program, students explore the components of exposure, and learn how to select lenses, master depth of field, and transform subjects through the use of shutter speed. Students also explore 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. All students are required to bring a camera with manual exposure control to this photography workshop.
