Central Park Photo Tour
Explore Central Park’s most scenic spots! The Pond, The Dairy, Sheep Meadow, The Mall, The Bow Bridge, Bethesda Fountain, Strawberry Fields. And capture your own iconic images in the lower section of one of the world's greatest urban parks. I will talk photography, composition and technique, as you will hone your skills and develop your own eye. I will also talk Central Park and how amazing this 843 acre park's mid - century 19th century design and vision still lives today in 21st century New York. It is amazing, no matter how many times I have toured "The Lungs of Manhattan" over the years, I always experience and see something new. The vistas, the seasonal flora (and fauna), the natural details, the parksgoers....This tour is about sharing my photographic skills along with my passion and knowledge of this park with you.
