The Denver Zoo has an array of animals from all over the world! Your DPA Instructor will present you with techniques that will help you in taking great portraits of these exotic beasts.
Many people try to photograph their favorite animals, only to be disappointed with the results. Troubles with the flash and exposure often leads to extremely dark or bright photos. Your DPA Instructor can help you fix these kinds of problems.
However, the Composition in the Field class is meant to teach you various techniques that help one create powerful images. The use of lines and angles is crucial in getting a photo to be seen well by the eye. Your DPA Instructor will offer you these guidelines throughout your time in the zoo.
We’ll be meeting at the Zoo’s entrance, by the turnstiles. Bring $12 for entrance into the zoo.
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.
Please note – if a class must be cancelled due to weather or other circumstances beyond our control we will be happy to work with you to reschedule. If you should need to cancel and require a new class date, contact us. A $25 transfer fee will be imposed without a 3 day notice before the scheduled class.
