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.

Garfield Park Conservatory

Back in 1907 designed what Chicago’s West Side called a Pleasure Ground, Garfield Park, and it gloriously stands today as a picturesque warming spot in the dead of winter as well as in full bloom in the other season. If you dare the cold, begin your collections of photographs on the outer glass structure of patterns, shapes and reflections. Inside your Digital Photo Academy instructor will share ideas on steadying your camera without relying on a tripod so you can capture the waterfall. Or point your lens in any direction on the magnificent growing room to capture the saturated hues of a full variety of flora. Use your creative expression to hone in on the various cacti of the Desert Room and walk away with imaginative abstractions. Through Sept. 2016 you can test the possibilities of ambient lighting reflecting from the multitude of shapes and patterns of the various items that comprise the installation entitled “Solarise,” of glass, dripping water, lights, mirrors and an array of object d’arts, each a photo op in and of itself.

  • Want to apply what you have learned in our DSLR/Point and Shoot classes out in the field.
