What you'll learn in this composition class:

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

This sunrise shoot at the west end of the mall has some great places to visit and to photograph. The Lincoln Memorial, Memorial Bridge, the Vietnam Memorial and the Korean War Memorial are within a short walk of each other. Take a walk with your Digital Photo Academy instructor, Vincent Knaus and visit these memorials and learn how to create great images of these iconic places.

Getting the best exposure possible can be tricky with subjects that have both bright highlights and dark shadows. Learn how to overcome these exposure problems and create images with details where you want them.

Even though this will be a fun walk, you will learn how lens choice effects cropping and how your subject relates to its background. Learn to use light, shadow and reflections to your advantage.

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 at the stone bench to the left of the steps leading up to the memorial. The Smithsonian Metro station (Blue and Orange Lines) is about a 30 minute walk along the Mall or the Arlington Cemetery Metro station (Blue Line) is a 20 minute walk across the Memorial Bridge.

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.

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.

Refund Policy
