Event Details

Making better photographs is as much about skill as it is about creativity, luck and being born with “a gift”.  Yes, you can actually learn to make a better photograph, most of us are not born great photographers, we can however become one.  Making a better photographer is a combination of experience, knowledge, technique and creative intuition.

This class is designed to deconstruct the technical barriers that prevent us from making the images we want to make.  Somewhere between your creative vision for an image and the actual image is a canyon of technical know how.  This class is designed to arm you with the techniques needed to narrow that gap and help you make the leap!


Topics to be covered include:

• Getting proper exposure

• Why you should shoot in RAW

• Lens choice: field of view vs distance to subject

• Proper technique for holding and stabilizing your camera

• Metering mode choice

• Which shooting modes to use and why

• Methods to avoid camera shake

• Minimize noise through proper setting choice using the exposure triangle

• Camera settings to maximize image potential

• Tripod vs handholding: when to use which

• Camera shake vs motion blur

• Techniques for taking the sharpest image possible

• Maximize the potential of any camera


You will come away from this Workshop with a better understanding of best practices for capturing better images.


Requirements: Please bring your camera for practice exercises.


PLEASE NOTE: There is a cat on the premises but he will be put out of the way during the course of this Workshop.

NYC Digital Photography Workshops

New to photography? Know your way around a camera but your skills need some fine tuning or perhaps you are looking to take your photography to the next level? With so many resources now available out there, where do you start? New York City alone hosts over 100 groups on photography instruction, but do they have almost a century of photography experience to back that up? And more importantly, the drive to share that knowledge with you? Our experts in the field, all professional working photographers, can help guide you through the process – both creative and technical – of making an image. NYC Digital Photography Workshops creates fun, yet informative, workshops - both group & private - that spark creativity and technical know-how with or without having the latest and greatest gear. We offer over 120 workshops on everything from how to use your new DSLR, manual settings and composition to lighting, fashion and street photography. You will learn real-world photography tips, tricks and techniques both in the studio and in the field. We aim to build your confidence as a photographer all while giving you the skills you need to succeed as a photographer. At NYCDPW, you will be part of a community of photographers, from novice to expert, where you can hone your craft. Our instructors, themselves working photographers, have walked in your shoes. They speak your language and understand your challenges. Yes, intuitive instruction that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Register today…we look forward to helping YOU become a better photographer!
