In partnership with the International Center of Photography (ICP), and taught by award-winning and internationally exhibited photographer Lynn Saville, this four hour photography workshop introduces students to the fundamentals of taking photographs at twilight. Learn techniques for capturing the contrasts of light and shadow, color and movement in the darkening streets, lighted skyline and waterside parks of Brooklyn Bridge Park. We will discuss specific techniques for observing the urban scene, for focusing and exposing to create beautiful photographs in the shifting light of twilight.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for an introduction and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area before heading out for a live, guided shooting session in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.

Her recent retrospective exhibition, which inaugurated the new photography gallery at Pratt Institute, received high praise from The New Yorker: “There’s a long, rich history of New York photographers working at night, from Berenice Abbott to Joel Meyerowitz. Saville joins their ranks with these pictures…”
