For Historic architecture inside and out, nothing beats the picturesque setting of Christ Church in the City of Boston, the communities oldest surviving church building, well known as the Old North Church. Your DPA instructor will offer tips on creative ways to capture the church steeple with Aperture Priority, Framing Techniques, Bug’s eye perspectives and other ways to turn a snap shot into a compelling image.
Perhaps a street level reference point, taken while lying on the ground can make the often photographed structure into a special shot. Either way, know that, on April 18th, 1775, church sexton and Vestryman Captain, Robert Newman and John Pulling Jr., respectively, had climbed up there with 2 lanterns, based on warnings of the British troop’s arrival as directed by Paul Revere. There are other photo ops all up and down the street and the interiors of the collection of buildings each offer photo lessons in ambient lighting, detail of ornate designs from centuries ago.
The meeting place will be in front of the Steeple on 193 Salem St., Boston, MA 02113
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.
