DIY Photo Safari #8: The Glass House (CT)

This photography workshop takes place inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Although there will be artwork to photograph, this safari is about the use of light. The amazing Metropolitan Museum of Art features many would-be outdoor spaces that are now encapsulated inside the building (the American Courtyard, the European Sculpture Court, etc.). These spaces are beautifully lit by huge skylights, offering a unique opportunity to photograph several diverse architectural elements all in one setting. These conditions also offer some photographic challenges such as shooting in mixed lighting conditions and so we will also address "white balance". Join us for this safari and learn about light. This session is wheelchair accessible. please visit: https://newyorkcityphotosafari.com/museum-inside-out.html or call 1-718-268-9634
