The High Line and West Side Rail Yards

Saturday, September 22, 2018, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm (Raindate September 29)

Instructor: David Hartz

The High Line, New York's only elevated park, is a brilliantly-conceived conversion of a historic out-of-use railroad trestle into a public landscape. Opened in 1934, the rail track went out of use in 1980 and lay dormant until 2009, when the first section opened. The Highline, planted with wildflowers and grasses, offers photographers some of the best views in New York, intriguing street photography and interesting composition opportunities.

We'll begin with a discussion of composition and camera settings. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way to look at your work and answer questions. Together, we will explore this extraordinary urban park and rail yards while we put into practice the rules of composition to create memorable images.

I've walked the High Line several times and the experience is different each time.

NYC Subways Series: The Art Underground Old and New

Old Subway: Sunday, February 3, 2019, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

New Subway: Sunday, February 10, 2019, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Instructor: Alan Kesselhaut

"In New York City, underground art is a literal phenomenon." Huffington Post. We will explore the NYC Subway, finding astonishing museum-quality artworks in the Subway's labyrinth of corridors while we capture the energy and soul of the people who inhabit the underground street.

In the Old Subway, we'll shoot a Roy Lichtenstein mural, passageways lined with colorful glass mosaics and a profusion of work in unexpected materials, all without leaving the subway!

In the New Subway, We'll shoot Chuck Close's and Vik Muniz' extraordinary contemporary mosaics and the spectacular Oculus at the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. The class meets at Penn Station. Your registration includes one subway entrance fare per class.

This one requires two weekends! I've done field trips in New York City with instructor Alan Kesselhaut and @princeton_photo. I was exhausted but I learned a lot and captured some great images for my catalogue.
