Marie Papp Photography
Hello students, I can offer you one on one on-line lessons during this time of social distancing. I do have a photography studio in Hoboken as well. I can teach you many areas of photography including: composition, lighting, how to use your Digital or Film SLR in manual mode so you can be your most creative. I will discuss lenses and make it fun and interesting.
I studied photography at New York University over 20 years ago and learned photography using film cameras.
I have had a successful photography business for 20 years in the NJ/NY metro area. www.mariepapp.com
I have been recognized as one of the best photographers in New Jersey for several years.
I love being able to inspire students to be creative and teach them how they can communicate their their camera and their vision.
As a photographer, I enjoy helping others see themselves differently in photographs. I teach them how to relax and pose when being photographed.

A few months ago I had 17 girls scouts in my studio and I gave them a lesson on photography. I demonstrated how a slow shutter speed with fast movement of the subject can practically make someone disappear. They were so impressed.
