What you'll learn in this composition class:

The LA downtown skyline is majestic at sunset and there is a vacant lot in Lincoln Heights that provides ideal photo access. Join this workshop and we will take you there.

Your DPA instructor will talk to you about what can be unpredictable lighting conditions and how to emerge victorious when the sky is misbehaving. What photographers refer to as Blue Light offers portfolio worthy images and then your careful choice as to what is within your frame adds to whatever visual narrative you create. Your DPA instructor will demonstrate and supervise a full array of options.

You can point your lens directly toward the skyline so it dominates the image or work your Aperture Priority to frame the city structures with palm trees as an overlay for another kind of scenic imagery.

When the workshop begins the lighting will be earlier in the day and those photo ops allow your image viewer to imagine more of a story of the hardened city. Your DPA instructor will help you remember to be cognizant of wanted and unwanted objects that are easy to overlook. A helicopter flying overhead might be ideal to tell the story or maybe you need to pick a slightly different angle to hide unsightly antennae atop a building.

Another option is to set the skyline well off into the distance, telling a tale of a faraway strange land, surrounded by palm trees that shroud a challenging urban destination.

If you have a tripod that would be helpful but there are other ways to stabilize your camera for longer exposures as advised by your DPA instructor.

Park on the street and meet at 3217 Minnesota St, Los Angeles, CA 90031

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.

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.
