The High Line was built in the 1930s as part of a massive public-private infrastructure project. It lifted freight traffic 30 feet in the air, removing dangerous trains from the streets of Manhattan's largest industrial district. Today, the High Line is an extraordinary elevated public park. "...its vantage point, different from that of any street, sidewalk, or park, never ceases to surprise and delight." (NationalGeographic.com) Read more about the High Line We'll begin with a discussion of composition, camera settings and how to shoot in various lighting situations. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way to look at your work and answer questions. Together, we will explore this fantastic urban park while we put into practice the rules of composition to create memorable images. At the end of our walk, we welcome students to join us at GastroMarket in Chelsea to discuss the day's instruction.
