What you'll learn in this composition class:

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.

The charm and vibrance of Chinatown is there for the capture, from colorful murals that are images in and of themselves but also captivating backdrops to make striking portraits. Your instructor will work with you to experiment with depth of field options in this mural/model setting, blurring the background as a swirl of hues for an emphasis on the model.
 
Catch the chaos of the community with a broad perspective and a simultaneous focus on the noteworthy details to convey the full dymanic. Learn the art of Leading Lines, Rule of Thirds and other theories of composing powerful images, as you focus on colorful lanterns, old world street lamps, architectural details and exotic vendors.
 
Blend blue sky with ornate roof tops for visually pleasing silhouettes and photographic abstractions. Wherever your lens is pointed, an arresting image is possible.

Meet at the Starbucks at the corner of Bush Street and Grant Avenue. This is in front of the Dragon’s Gate entrance to Chinatown.
