New York at twilight is a study in contrasts. Changing conditions of light and weather interact with architecture to build and dismantle an endless series of twilight cities, each hinting at pleasure and mystery. In this course, students explore this shifting scene, developing their powers of observation and photographic techniques. Field trips explore the contrasts between obscure urban spaces (warehouses and industrial zones) and urban icons such as the Flatiron Building and the Washington Square Arch. Each student creates a new body of work that addresses the paradoxical identities of the city.
Prerequisite: Photo I or portfolio review
For the first day of class you will need to bring a camera (it is best if the camera has a manual setting for exposure), a tripod, and a remote or cable release. Students with a film camera should bring at least one role of film, and students with a digital camera should bring a memory card with plenty of available memory. For film users, color negative or slide film, ISO 200 or 400 is recommended. In preparation for the class, please review your camera's instruction manual. You should also complete the following assignment; take 20 to 40 photographs, of a variety of subjects, at twilight, dawn, or when it completely dark. Bring 10-15 photographs to show during the first class. They can be either 4" x 6" prints or digital files.
