Event Description: There are many things to photograph at Coney Island so we may establish a “Treasure Hunt list” of fun ideas. We will explore techniques such as, fast and slow shutter speeds, depth of field, playing with shadows, unusual camera angles and playing with color. We will photograph and tour through the amusement ride area, Luna Park, a new area of contemporary murals by local artists, Coney Island Art Walls, arcade games and shops along the Boardwalk, Fishing Pier and beach. There will be a visit to the Coney Island Museum which features an exhibition of a fully 3D model replica of Coney Island, Luna Park, as it stood a hundred years ago. Admission to the museum is complimentary. There will be time for an ice cream or ride on the Cyclone Roller Coaster. The event ends at the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog shop. All who wish can join me for subway ride back to Manhattan.
Who will enjoy this event?: This event is for anyone interested in photography. It is recommended that you have your own Digital SLR camera and have basic knowledge of camera functions. You will get more out of this if you do not rely on your phone camera. Beginners and Advanced photographers are welcome.
