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

Dating back to the early 1900’s up through the 60’s, Glen Echo Park was the go-to spot for DC residents and others who were looking for gleeful carnival and amusement park activities, including the roller coasters and the vintage variety of attractions. Today a photographer can create a dream like narrative using the charming structures as subject matter. Your DPA instructor will demonstrate use of color, Art Deco architecture, and especially the antique Dentzel carousel dating back to 1921. The menagerie includes 2 chariots, 4 rabbits, 4 ostriches, a lion, a tiger, a giraffe and a prancing deer.

This myriad of colorful displays can serve as anchors and props to enhance a portrait of a friend or family member and the DPA instructor will show you some easy tips to use the setting in a way that anchors the eye of the viewer of your images to accent a more compelling depiction of whomever you are photographing, resulting in photos that go well beyond the snapshot category. You will learn how to pose people or little tricks to catch them in a candid but flattering fashion against contrasting or complimentary colors that showcase their eyes, hair, clothing so your results are dynamic and worth keeping.

You will meet the instructor at the parking lot by the wooden bridge which also serves as the parking lot for the Clara Barton House at 7300 MacArthur Blvd, Glen Echo, MD, 20812

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.

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
