What you'll learn in this on location photography class:

From Broadway to South Street, for less than a mile, lies Wall Street, a dynamic destination embroiled in the minds of people around the world, a photographer’s dream. Hone in on new ways to photograph well known statues and sculptures in the area but doing so in a way that anchors the subject matter and transcends snapshot sensibility, moving to portfolio worthy images. Capture the compelling street scenes of old world architecture or people on the go. You will find the lost souls who are overlooked by society as well as those who have made it big and seem not to get beyond their own possessions and earmarkings of classic material success. 

Tell the story with your photographs. Your instructor will help you to create strong portraits with an Aperture Control Strategy that shows the subject in crystal clear clarity, set against the blurred background that adds to the narrative of the human condition. Develop your panning skills as the limos and taxi’s speed by, with the occasional bicycle messenger. Point your lens upward to catch the dizzying silhouettes of the buildings against the sky.

You will meet your instructor by the world famous metallic sculpture of the bull on Broadway & Morris Street, the famous sculpture that metaphorically exemplifies the treachery and merciless reality of one of the world’s unforgiving financial centers.

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.

Take this course if you:

  • Want to learn 6 Digital Photo Composition Strategies
  • Want to apply what you have learned in our DSLR/Point and Shoot classes out in the field
  • Want to test your camera’s capabilities side by side with your instructor in amazing locations
  • Want to appreciate local areas in a whole new way and capture amazing images that will last a lifetime
  • Want to meet and learn from some of our 100+ instructors across the country
Meeting spot right by the main entrance of Trinity Church.
