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.
We had a wonderful time in Manhattan today at the American Museum of Natural History. The kids also wanted to visit Central Park so after a few hours in the museum we exited onto West 81 Street. We all love watching the Penguins of Madagascar cartoon show, so I think Shaan and Kiran just wanted so see the place where the Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private have their adventures.
The weather was just perfect and given that most people were either at work or engaged with Easter or Passover, the area was not crowded. We walked a few of the trails around park for about an hour before heading home.
