Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this composition class:

Houston Arboretum and Nature Center offers miles of nature and hiking trails without bikers and other activities that distract from the communion with nature and wildlife. Focus on a quiet scene of beautiful trees and shrubberies anchored by a wooden walkway or bench nestled within the foliage.

With colorful flowers and small Texas bred wildlife, use your Aperture Priority setting to capture animals as they go about their daily lives. Your instructor will help you depict portraits against background of contrasting colors to highlight your main subject, whether it is a butterfly, rabbit, turtle or other creature found in abundance.

For broader landscape shots, the options are unending and you can learn to compose these images in a way that elevates your photos from snapshots to compelling images with age old composition techniques such as Leading Lines, Rule of Thirds, Negative Space, Layering and much more.


About This Course


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.
