Workshop DescriptionWorkshop Name: 15-Week Online Photography Workshop
Photography students at New York Film Academy develop the skills necessary to research, compose, and capture digital photographic projects in hands-on courses. Students are encouraged to be creative, and taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic and aesthetic intent. They expand their repertoire of techniques as they explore practical sources of light and shadow.
No prior experience is required to enroll in the 15-Week Digital Photography Workshop.
Please note: All students are required to bring a digital camera with manual exposure controls.

This core photography class includes lectures, demonstrations, shooting assignments, and in-class critique while challenging students to execute demanding professional-scale assignments including personal projects, fashion, beauty, still life, portraiture, editorial, complex composites, and more.
In Imaging students learn to train their eyes to pre-visualize the possibilities latent in an image, to apply principles of color, and understand how the viewer “reads” an image in order to create photographs that will stand the test of time. This is done through the use of both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
Vision & Style
With a focus on creative queries and challenges, students engage in long-term personal projects, and improve their visual literacy through engagement with and analysis of their fellow students’ work. This culminates in a final critique of either personal or commercial work.
History of Photography
Students study and analyze masterful photographers, not only by analyzing their distinct techniques, aesthetics, and approaches, but also by literally re-creating their images with precise attention to composition, lighting, gesture, format, and palette. Following this photography class, students are able to select the best methods by which to realize their own unique vision.
TIMES AND BREAKDOWN BY WEEK
