Photographing Green-Wood: Advice from an Expert

June 10, 2017, 3:00pm7:00pm


Although Green-Wood’s vast expanse of rolling hills, glacial ponds, and over 150 species of trees is one of New York City’s most loved green-spaces, it can be difficult to capture on film. In this class, Sean Sime, who has over 20 years of professional experience in journalism, fashion, and documentary photography, will share tips, techniques, and tools for capturing the splendor of nature.

You will learn the best practices for lighting and composition, as well as discovering how to fine tune exposure and focus. (The program is timed to capture the beauty of the late afternoon sun.) Sean will evaluate participants’ work, offering guidance on best practices for future shooting expeditions of Green-Wood or other landscapes. An SLR or DSLR camera is necessary.

$40 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $45 for non-members
