Interested in Attending Composition on Location: Central Park

Composition on Location: Central Park

Sunday, October 7, 2018, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm (Rain date October 14)

Instructor: Bill Blanchard

The allure of Central Park that attracts locals and international visitors to this urban oasis has much to do with its appealing juxtaposition of rustic landscapes with cityscapes and people watching. We’ll start with a discussion of composition and camera settings for the conditions we find. Together, we will explore the “beauty, the charm, and whimsy” of the central section of this iconic parkland while we put into practice the rules of composition to create memorable images.

I’ve visited and photography Central Park and a few times with my family. But I think the experience is completely different one is walking around with instructor Bill Blanchard a small group of photographers from @princeton_photo with the intent to capture something interesting.
