I participated in a Photo Safari in April during a short holiday to the States. I had been to NYC before and wanted to try something different. I thought I was just going to have someone show me where to take the pictures but instead I got real instructions on how to actually make the picture better! It was a complete surprise and a delight. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot and was able to return home with some pictures I'm proud to share too.
I'm just delighted with my experience and can't recommend it enough.
These walking tours of various areas in NYC (Greenwich Village, Central Park, the Financial District) teach photography while using the city as the classroom.
Tours begin with a talk on photography that features pointers on taking better pictures. At each location a bit of the history of the area is given and then people are set free to capture the area with their cameras.
During the free time to photograph, you are able to ask for feedback on your photos or for help with understanding your camera better.
It's a different way to see NYC while also learning to capture what you see in new ways.
