Digital Photo Live In-the-Field Workshop @ The Denver Civic Center
The Denver Civic Center is the heart and soul of downtown Denver. It includes the downtown business district, the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Public Library, the Civic Center Park, and the Capitol, City and County Building. In short, the Civic Center has it all so join your Digital Photo Academy instructors Lincoln Phillips and Dan Jahn to shoot it all with your camera.
In the Civic Center, you will shoot a variety of subjects from a variety of angles. These unique angles in architecture and point of view make the Civic Center such an exciting place for a photographer to explore. Shoot wide angle shots of the cityscape and contort into new positions to see old landmarks in a whole new way. Photograph important municipal buildings and families out for a stroll through the Center.
Shooting with a professional photographer will give you the ability to ask questions and learn the tricks of the trade first hand. Shoot in manual mode and acquire the proper exposure depending on the light and subject, and learn compositional techniques like leading lines and depth of field to concentrate your viewers’ eyes on a specific piece of your image and create unique photographs.
Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and the equipment that you can carry. You should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
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.
