Sundays In NY Photo Workshops teach you how to use your camera technically, inspire you aesthetically with ‘The Art of Seeing,’ then lovingly critiqued for a direction, style and a new found passion. - Judith Farber, founder
Many use cell phones to take photos. Such advancement, what’s next a 40 mg cell? shhhh it’s coming…! Did you know that photography is considered the most popular medium of creative expression in the world? We are inundated and overly stimulated with photos. And with good reason, they hold tremendous power as illustrated in the media, fashion world, advertising and our personal lives.
Sundays in NY Photography Workshops (SINY) was created by documentary and travel photographer, Judith Farber as a fun, creative, inspiring group activity on a Sunday in New York (after reading The NY Times and watching CBS Sunday Morning). Since everyone has some form of a camera, what better place to test your imagination than on the streets in one of the most exciting cities of the world.
Sundays in NY began with Photography Composition Workshops and due to that popularity were expanded to Saturdays along with the addition of classes that complement the street workshops. The Technical workshop – learn the functions and settings of your camera, the Night Photography workshop – how to take your best great photos at night, the Portrait, Architecture, and the NEW online Photo Critiquing Webinar – your photographs are critiqued, getting the exact information you need to take how you see to the next level, this is the one that forever changes how and what you shoot.
All cameras from cell, point and shoot to professional SLR/DSLR’s are welcome, including all photography levels and ages, beginners to professionals. Learn to use compelling and persuasive tools to expand your vision and style, documenting what you see to a higher level. Whether it’s a hobby, a profession or merely a creative expression, there’s something in it for all ages to explore and enjoy with little or no preparation. Or is there?
Where ever you are on your photo journey, there are specific steps and classes offered to enhance your skills.
Here’s some order to that process
1. Purchase a great point and shoot or DSLR that is comfortable to hold along with lenses that give you the capability to do what you love (ok, latest iPhones too!)
2. Take Technical classes (1 and 2) to understand the functions of your camera
3. Take Composition 1 (can be taken before or after the Technical class) and Comp 2, learn how to see, creating perfect framing
4. Get your Images Critiqued, with an Photo Critique Webinar or Private Session for the crucial feedback in how/what to do to improve your photos going from blah to great, skillful at self-editing, find your style, and so much more
