What you'll learn in this photography class:

The composition of a photograph is the single most important element a photographer uses to convey an artistic statement.  What’s included, excluded and the arrangement of elements within the frame is all part of composition. 

This class will teach you techniques to improve the composition of your photos with hands-on shooting experience coupled with feedback.

Join instructor Michael Koren as you learn about composition in the Postal Museum and Union Station. The class begins with a lesson and viewing examples of compositional techniques from master photographers to help you when composing your own photographs.

We'll then go to specific locations to practice those composition techniques. Afterwards, participants will have free time to photograph all the museum has to offer. 

We’ll follow up with a gentle critique and feedback of your best work of the day.

This class is about "seeing" stronger images. Any camera will do from DSLRs to mobile phones. If you are bringing a DSLR or mirrorless camera, lenses in the range of 18-135 would work well. No tripods allowed for this class. 

There is also a Metro station at Union Station next door and there is metered street parking in the area.

COVID Safety Practices: We ask that you please wear a mask for this indoor class.
