Finally, we will examine how to achieve the best output for print and how to create beautiful books through the Lightroom Book Module.

About the Instructor

Carol Dragon is a New York City based photographer who focuses on portraiture, dance and documentary projects. Since 2015, Dragon has been working on a long-term project documenting the community and culture of New York City street dancers. For this immersive work, Dragon was awarded 2017 and 2018 Creative Engagement grants by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and a 2018 Citizens Committee of New York City Neighborhood Grant.
Dragon holds a BFA and MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she began her career as a painter. Since 1990, Dragon has worked solely with photography, but the influence of the painter’s eye still informs her practice.
Her work has been exhibited in multiple solo shows in New York City. Dragon recently staged an event, Beyond the Yellow Tape, which paired her portraits and videos of street dancers with live dance performances. In spring of 2019 her commissioned portraits for Families Belong Together were shown at SXSW in Austin, Texas. This exhibition was part of the ACLU 100 Years’ Experience and traveled to 15 other U.S. cities. In 2017 she had a solo exhibition, MADD PAIN, at Park Avenue Armory. Her images have been featured in multiple publications and her work was showcased in the Cynthia Dantzig book, 100 New York Photographers.
Besides working actively as a photographer, Dragon teaches at the International Center of Photography in New York and has done a number of workshops in Italy, Dubai and Maine. PDN magazine ranked her as one of the top photography instructors in the article: The Best Photo Workshops: A Reader Survey
