Come explore surrounding New York City landmarks with instructor Robert Schaefer!

In this 2 day workshop, students will explore striking elements of city architecture and produce digital negatives from their raw captures. Participants will visit the Flatiron Building, Empire State Building, Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building among others.  

Students take their raw captures shot in camera that day and print them on transparency film. On the second day, these negatives are used to print Cyanotypes. An overview of the cyanotype process will be demonstrated and practiced.

Students should come prepared with their own digital cameras, all other materials will be provided.

ROBERT A. SCHAEFER, JR. has been working in fine art photography for over 40 years. His imagery has been greatly influenced by architecture with an MA Degree from the Technical University in Munich, Germany.

His expertise in photography is passed on to students at New York University, and in his workshops and lectures for Penumbra/CAP.
