Whether capturing lakeside vistas in the park, flowers along the shore, couples rowing about in colorful paddle boats, the Echo Park venue offers a variety of photo ops including striking statues, swaying palms, skateboarders, portraits of an extensive variety and more.
Your DPA instructor will offer a variety of composition techniques to turn ordinary snapshots to compelling photographs. There will also be lessons on Shutter Speed Priority with the fountain in the lake to be used as the vehicle to render different water depictions from, “Frozen in Time Clarity,” to “Velvety Smooth Impressionistic Flow of Liquid.”
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.
