Get a solid ground on the fundamentals of the world of photography.
This beginner course covers well beyond the basics of your digital camera and exposure, into helping you create a solid foundation to start your photography journey. Classes will be made of different topics each week, from motion blur, through composition and framing, focus control, built in flash and the basics of digital post-processing.
This is also the best course to learn the best tricks for night photography. Students will be given weekly assignments and photo critiques, as well as in-class photo shoots which will further strengthen the techniques learned during each class. Should weather permits, some sessions will consist of shooting workshops around Union Square, NYC, where students will practice shooting in real life scenarios.
Students will also develop a series of photographs of their own choice of topic throughout the course that will be showcased in a group photo exhibit (optional).

Established in 2003 in NYC, with thousands of happy students and a solid presence in NYC, PhotoManhattan Photography School offers an affordable means of entry and advance into the world of art and photography. We are committed to the idea of photography as an accessible means of personal expression and artistic documentation. And considering the upfront costs inherent in photography (the purchase of equipment), there's no reason why essential instruction should be beyond the reach of those interested.
To that effect, PhotoManhattan offers introductory and advanced photography classes to the public at rates that are only a fraction of those of larger photography institutes and schools in New York, as well as affordable rentals of darkroom and studio space and lights.
For beginners, instruction in basic topics emphasizes critical technique and control of the camera. To those more advanced, we have challenging photography courses in Studio Lighting and Street Photography that will make even experienced amateurs stop and think about exactly what they are trying to do when they hit the shutter.
In addition, we host group events, exhibitions and lead group workshops in Union Square and in different neighborhoods of New York City. A wide range of people have taken classes here, and participated in group events, from professionals, to those seeking to become professionals, to those who are looking for a means of moving beyond the 8-6 routine that otherwise traps so many of us.
