    Crash Course: Quick & Dirty Portrait Photography

    (9)
    Making a great portrait doesn't necessarily require expensive gear. Take one of the most famous portraits of all time: Steve McCurry's Afghan Girl, shot for the cover of National Geographic in 1985 using only a 35mm camera and natural light. It's not the tools themselves that do the job, but rather the mind creating with them. In this illuminating Crash Course we'll help you to observe, visualize and control natural light, demonstrating how light and shadow, as well as different focal lengths, affect the dimensions of the human face. You'll get valuable practice photographing people and learn to put subjects at ease. Make vivid portraits a part of your everyday.

    iPhoneography 101

    (9)
    This camera never leaves your side… lucky for you it's a pretty excellent camera. The iPhone is like the swiss army knife of cameras, with an explosion of apps and filters, but it still has that unique quality entirely its own. Like the Polaroid and Instamatic before it, the iPhone's camera has become a cultural touchstone, beloved by pros and hobbyists alike. We’ll take you through a presentation of the handheld medium, from classic snapshot photographers to contemporary innovators of smartphone photography. We'll break down the important control features often hidden from view in the iPhone's Camera app, as well as how to tweak the camera and options to get what you want. Students will take part in a live-shooting session and share the photos using some of our favorite recommended apps.

    Spring and Fall Surf Lesson

    (1)
    For a crime-fighting mutant turtle forced to live in the shadows, surfing the sewers of NYC might be the only option available. For everyone else, there's Rockaway Beach. Shredding waves at this hip Queens destination happens to be one of the great little-known recreational thrills available to those residing in the concrete jungle, and it all begins with a 2-hour group lesson. Kick things off with some footwork pointers on the sand, then paddle out alongside your instructor. Learn to read and catch the waves, pop up, and maintain your balance once you're standing. The typically gently rolling waves of Rockaway are perfect for a surfing neophyte looking to get his or her feet wet. Before you know it, you'll be wearing board shorts, bleaching your hair, and robbing banks in a dead-president mask. Watch out for crime-fighting mutant turtles.
