Be a Better Photographer
Now that smartphones with cameras are ubiquitous, it’s easy to snap shots of everything you do and then crop, apply filters, get rid of red eye and upload them to the web. Everyone’s a photographer now, but you may just want to up your game and really stand out by taking a digital photography class at PhotoManhattan near Union Square, or by learning how to use the awesome power of Photoshop at Dose Projects in Greenpoint.

Whether you want to learn to create a cast for metal jewelry by making a wax carving and then casting your piece at Brooklyn Metal Works Wax and Polish class or hammer metal in a cuff or earrings at Jewelry Arts Institute in midtown, designing and making your own jewelry is one way to while away the winter hours.
