I took two classes: the Nuts and Bolts class, where I learned all about how to use the manual controls on my camera; and the Times Square Night shoot, where I learned how to do night photography. I gained so much from both of these classes and was able to immediately put my lessons into practice when I got home. As a beginner, I was happy that my instructor had patience, while still being a professional. I highly recommend NYC Photo Safari! Do wear walking shoes on your safari!!!
