What you'll learn in this composition class:

Composition in the Field: Lincoln Park Zoo

Sometimes it is quite a challenge to create a compelling image of animals and other attractions at a zoo. The bars, the other visitors, various debris lead to distracting elements of making the best images. Your Digital Photo Academy instructor will offer tips on playing the waiting game to get photographs that best reflect a natural habitat. There are also composition techniques and selection of lenses that result in animals in action, at rest and play in the water or on land. And at the zoo the animals are not the only attraction. Learn to capture environmental portraits of flowers and fauna as well as the vendors, other visitors and the architecture of the facility itself.

There is a public transit stop on Stockton drive immediately outside the West Main gate to the zoo. It is very near Stockton Drive and Webster. It is easy to find and is a nice quiet place to assemble and talk before we actually start.

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.
