Tripods and monopods allowed! For this Workshop only, we have been granted permission to photograph and use tripods/monopods in various areas of Grand Central Station with some exceptions, which are listed below. In this class, we will focus on the history and grander of one of the country's most utilized train stations. We will be learning low-light photography skills and photographing the interior of the building from specific and designated vantage points within the terminal. The class will finish outside with the opportunity to photography exterior views of the famous landmark - weather permitting.
