In picturesque Back Bay, Copley Square offers great photo ops year round. Focus on the detail or broader perspective of the whimsical collection of fanciful orbs along the perimeter or anchor a scenic shot of the interior with a 100+ year old statue of John Singleton Copley.
Your instructor will share techniques for capturing the dramatic architecture of the row of landmark buildings, modern and vintage, that you face in every direction. Starting with Trinity Church, known for its Richardson Romanesque style of architecture, named after the 19th century architect, you don’t need to place every structure dead center. Develop your signature style with composition strategies such as Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Framing and other approaches explained during the shoot.
Public square in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, bounded by Boylston Street, Clarendon Street, St. James Avenue, and Dartmouth Street. Meet at Starbucks in Westin Hotel Copley at
Each Composition in the Field class begins with a talk with one of our experienced instructors, and then you and your fellow students take a stroll through one of a variety of photogenic locales (in any of the 20+ cities the DPA encapsulates). There is street photography, magnificent interiors, farmers markets, zoos, landscapes, and more, photos of which are included within. These photos are a mix of student and instructor images in many different venues and cities across the United States and Canada.
You will have fun in the three hour session, learn to shoot strategically, get more interesting photos of the event, and walk away with a foundation to improve your photographs in the future, whether you’re traveling, or at a birthday party and everywhere in between.
