Paulus Hook Ferry Terminal, Jersey City, NJ

Instructor: Bill Blanchard

We'll meet at the Jersey City Ferry Dock for a short ferry ride to Downtown Manhattan. From the ferry, we’ll have views of Ellis Island, The Statue of Liberty, Manhattan’s skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge. After docking, we’ll make our way to Battery Park, shooting images and talking photography along the way, then on to the World Trade Center’s Memorial Pools. As the light changes, we'll talk about camera settings under different conditions. On the return ferry ride, we will shoot night images of the Hudson River and the New York skyline.

Really excited about this field trip with @billblanchard and @princeton_photo. I've wanted to capture views The Lower Manhattan Cityscape for some time.
