New York City: Photography Class at The Met

Jessica Peterson

I took my first photography class in November and this is what resulted. The seasoned and snarky Zim of New York Photo Safari urged me to compose thoughtfully and push my angles. I am forever grateful. I highly recommend this class — it pleasantly filled my solo afternoon in Manhattan. And who can beat $100 for private lessons? (There was only one other person in my class.)

The Met sculpture gallery was intensely dreamy. I’ve been to the Met a couple of times, but not in a long time. I fell in love with the Greek gods and goddesses all over again. The first time I had this feeling was at the Louvre when I was 21.

    Hi Jessica, beautiful shots. What kind of camera you used?

  • Jing Xu

    Thanks. I use T2i. You don’t mind I add your website to my links? I love your style and fashion shots too. I will put this, ” Jessica Peterson, a true artist and a master of colors”. In the meanwhile , if you can add mine too yours as “a merry mess” will be great.

    I added my personal style to my blogs, now there is not only something interesting to read, but something else to see too in my blog. But bear me, I am new on the scene and my stuff is raw.

  • These photos are stunning! It’s been too long since I’ve been to the Met!

  • Great shots! This post also reminds me that I have a ton of photos from the Met lying around somewhere that I need to find 😀
