Weather permitting, classes will happen in Central Park.
You will spend three hours learning an extraordinarily intuitive way of using your camera. No memorization or note taking is allowed. Rather than learning through cramming a lot of information into your head and trying to regurgitate it later, you'll learn through doing the exercises and through JP's approachable and engaging teaching style.
Most beginner photographers spend a lot of time staring at their cameras wondering what all the buttons and dials do. JP will demystify your camera for you so that you're no longer staring down at your camera but, instead, you'll be able to focus much more on the world around you so that you can really capture the magical once-in-a-lifetime moments that are constantly happening around you.
JP will cover topics like exposure (which will explain why none of your sunset pictures ever come out the way you want them to), aperture (so that you get a blurry background whenever you want it) and shutter speed (so that you can create some amazing motion blur shots that will look spectacular).
No need to have a fancy camera! Bring what you have and you'll walk away knowing more about your camera, photography and with some beautiful images!
The exact location will be emailed out 24 hours prior to the class start time.
JP Pullos has been a professional photographer for six years. In that time, his images have shown up in The New York Times, GQ, New York Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, The New York Observer, The Village Voice and Time Out New York.
He teaches photography classes in New York City and has taught over 2,500 people how to use their cameras. His Central Park photography class was chosen by NY Magazine as one of the top ten things to do over Memorial Day weekend 2010.
When he isn’t teaching, you’ll most likely find JP photographing celebrities on and off the red carpet.
