Learn the art of scouting for an image and get a quick lesson in visual editing. Depending on the season (see Departure Point), this tour meets at either the Belvedere Castle or the Bethesda Fountain, allowing you to take full advantage of seasonal changes in foliage.
Museum Inside Out:
This unique tour takes place inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art (admission included). Although there will be famous artwork to photograph, this photo tour concentrates on the use of light. The Met features many would-be outdoor spaces that are now encapsulated inside the building, like the American Courtyard and the European Sculpture Court. These spaces are beautifully lit by huge skylights, offering a unique opportunity to photograph several diverse architectural elements all in one setting.
NYC After Dark:
Join a nighttime tour in Times Square to focus on taking photos in low light. Learn how flash and long exposure work, and take memorable photos that capture the unique signs, lights and billboards of Times Square. This tour is for advanced photographers, and participants must provide their own tripods.
Iconic New York:
Capture the city's most iconic sites on this fast paced tour. Photograph Times Square, the Chrysler building, Bryant Park (home of Fashion Week), Grand Central Terminal, the New York Public Library, and the Empire State Building (at a distance). The departure time for this tour shifts with the seasons, departing in the afternoon to take advantage of the sky's changing colors during the fading light of dusk and concluding as the city lights come alive. Appropriate for all skill levels.

I really enjoyed my Photo Walking Tour through Central Park. I received personal attention from the instructor to improve my photographs. I was given a goal to photograph a sight. She reviewed the picture and then gave me tips on how to improve the composition and use the functions of my camera. I then re-shot the same picture getting the results I was trying to get. This was so valuable. I am no longer making the same mistakes over and over hoping for a different outcome. Now before I take a picture, I hear, Zim, my instructor say..."get into it, find the picture". It was great fun and I have some fantastic pictures to remember my day in Central Park.
