Diversity NYC -- OPEN TO HM STUDENTS ONLY

July 8-July 26

In this course, students will use digital photography to explore the richly diverse cultures of New York City. An emphasis will be placed on street photography as the class will spend over a week taking pictures in different boroughs, visiting landmarks, historical blocks, and hidden gems throughout the city. This course will focus both on techniques of photographing city life and critiques of the works produced.

The class will begin with three days of foundational technical and creative instruction as well as a refresher on street safety so that students will feel competent and comfortable photographing in NYC. After every assignment, we will hold a class critique, constructively helping students improve their digital photography skills. The second half of technical acquisition will involve learning to edit volumes of photos through Adobe Lightroom and Capture One Pro. In addition, students will learn the secrets and intricate details of digital printing and photographic presentation. The summer course will culminate in a portfolio of work representing each student's creative ability to capture the diversity of NYC.

There is no charge for the course but busing to and from Manhattan for the week is available for a fee; unfortunately, bus service for the Bronx, New Jersey, and Westchester is not available in the summer. The bus application is available under the link for Applications & Forms.
