"BKC is a haven for art, craft and photography lovers, and they offer tons of fantastic classes. The space we worked in was so fresh and inspiring. Our BKC instructors, Caitlin and Caroline, were so knowledgeable, friendly, and hands on..."
"You would be hard pressed to find a superior spot to be schooled in the fundamentals that you will need to know, at this price. I have taken workshops at several other local outfits, and the quality of the education here is *unmistakably* better. Excellent location in the heart of DUMBO near Brooklyn Bridge Park, knowledgeable and charismatic instructors who are well regarded professionals in the field, very cool studio space that classes are taught in, easy to use web registration, fun newsletter/events, and extremely accommodating customer service when you need a little extra help..."
"BKC is fantastic! For the first time (even though I've tried before) I feel like I know enough of the fundamentals to be able to take good photos or at least to know why the ones I'm taking aren't good. Charles and Justin are awesome, super helpful, and clearly very passionate about teaching. I just regret not finding this place sooner. What's even more awesome is that I don't need to stop at the basics class as they offer tons of other classes they offer. Thank you BKC!"
"I just took the "The Hand-made Book" class with Caitlin Wheeler - It was awesome! Caitlin is a well versed, informative, fun and sweet instructor. We received thorough direction accompanied by a detailed instruction manual. Within the class we made 3 different books that we were able to take away with us... I'M SO GLAD I WENT!
“Caroline and Caitlin (our fearless leaders) totally knew their stuff and guided us through a few hours of making our very own prints. It was awesome to have all of the materials at our disposal, and even better to have fun people in the class during the process.”
Long summer days have come to an end, so to make light of the dark situation we are now offering NIGHT VISION with Kathy Rugh. Photography is the practice of capturing of light... but what happens when it's too dark to see? Here's where your DSLR can surprise you. All you need is a tripod, a cable release (or self-timer) and the arcane "B" (bulb) setting, and we'll show you tricks for photographing under extremely low light conditions. You'll be transported to a place where moonlight and streetlamps provide your main sources of light, where colors shift and ghosts appear, where things are not as they seem. Kathy will guide you through a unusual photographic journey, perfect for the spooky time of year!
