Join internationally known photographer and filmmaker Joe DiMaggio on a Photowalk through beautiful Central Park, the most visited urban park in the United States. Central Park has extensive walking paths, lakes and streams, lush landscapes and vistas, numerous historic buildings and sculptures, sporting, recreation and entertainment venues, and has been the setting for countless movies and television shows.
In addition to the Central Park Zoo, the park has its own wildlife, and serves as an oasis for migrating birds especially in the spring and fall. Springtime in the park is a very special time and season of the year, when the park comes 'back to life' after the dormancy of winter. There are fields of daffodils and tulips, and by mid April (if the weather is cooperative), Central Park is awash in cherry blossoms, flowering dogwood, and magnolias, while the air becomes fragrant with the smell of freshly blooming flowers and trees.
There are an infinite number of places to explore along the way and the opportunities to make some great photographs abound– Joe will provide on-location instruction on how to vary perspective, shoot close-ups, how to create mood, environmental portraits, panning for action, shooting in a variety of lighting situations, and more, so you can learn how to make memorable photographs, not merely recording a place or scene.
As with all Photowalks, the goal is for this to be a terrific day photographing memorable images, sharing a special camaraderie and having fun, so be flexible and come prepared to learn and enjoy!
*Please note: itinerary may be subject to last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances.
Equipment: You want to go as light as possible–really! Bring one camera and one wide-angle zoom and one mid-range zoom (i.e., 10-22mm, 16-35mm, 24-70mm or 70-200mm) lenses. Bring plenty of memory cards, extra batteries, a cleaning cloth, some filters (polarizing if it's a sunny day), plastic bags for your gear if it's inclement weather, and a strobe unit is optional.
Please: NO tripods, NO rolling cases, and NO large backpacks.
Clothing: We will mainly be outdoors so bring appropriate clothing for the weather of the day, dress casually and comfortably, with good walking shoes, and remember, this is a full day of walking and photographing.
Level: All levels, from Photo Enthusiasts to Aspiring Pros.
