What you'll learn in this composition class:

Digital Photography Live In-the-Field Workshop @ National Mall Central Shoot

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 central section of the mall is home to the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial, Tidal Basin, Roosevelt Memorial, and World War II Memorial and the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. This section of the Mall is also where the largest concentration of Cherry Trees is located in Washington, DC. This is the largest grouping of monuments and memorials on the mall so wear some comfortable walking shoes and lets go photograph some cherry blossoms and monuments.

Getting great images of the Washington Monument can be a challenge because of its height and shape. Learn ways to give your images balance when you are presented with an element that is either very tall and thin or very short and wide.

You will often come across situations that have extreme contrast from very dark to very light, all in the same scene. Learn how to expose your images to get the tonal range you want in your final image.

The places we will visit are photographed everyday by hundreds of people. Enjoy a walk through these great places and get some photographic tips that will help you create images you will be proud of.

Please be sure to charge your battery before coming to class and bring a spare battery if you have one. Comfortable walking shoes will make the walk much more pleasant and be sure to dress for the weather. 

Meet the group in front of the Washington Monument Lodge at Madison Dr. & 15th St NW, Washington DC. The Smithsonian Metro station (Blue and Orange Line) is about a 10 minute walk from the lodge.

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.
