What you'll learn in this composition class:

Historic Market Square
A sunset timing shoot to catch the charm of Houston’s Old Market Square offers a plethora of photo ops. Thanks to most of the buildings not exceeding 2 stories, possibly a skyscraper or two but only off in a bit of the distance, the literal sunset shoot is quite lovely. And the oldest building, now a bar, dates back to around the 1850’s, so vintage architectural shooting is in the cards too. Then there is the nostalgic Majestic Metro theater neon sign with photo access on the sidewalk as well as several other photo themes to be included in advance of the sunset during the sweet light of the day. This includes vibrant painted wall murals, off-beat outdoor sculptures, colorful tile mosaics, produce stands and even a small urban park.

Your DPA instructor will lead you and your co-workshop participants around this varying tour, compact for convenience but still offering many themes to shoot and provide a photographic narrative of a day in Houston. You will learn composition tricks that transform snapshots into compelling images worthy of living room or office wall mounting. The composition strategies which you can easily learn are excellent tools for use in every photo activity in your future, whether travel, family gathering, sports, landscapes, flowers and everything in between.

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.

A $25 transfer fee will be imposed without a 3 day notice before the scheduled class.
