Join our photo lessons at La Boulange in North Beach, which is one of the excellent locales in the rotation of many San Francisco venues that offer terrific photo opportunities.
Imagine that you’ve been hired to shoot photos of this colorful, little Italian neighborhood in San Francisco for an article in a national magazine. Your DPA instructor will lead a small group of photographers on a rewarding quest to fulfill an assignment for a fictitious magazine.
In the field, you will learn how to read and interpret the assignment letter so you can prepare for, and map, shoots, including determining when releases are needed and how to obtain them, and using negative space for copy. You will also gain confidence in your interpretation and composition in the field as you learn new techniques and review your shots to finish the assignment.
We will start at the La Boulange in North Beach, have a short meeting, and start shooting, reviewing the days shots at the Caffe Trieste.
There will be quite a bit of walking so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Please bring only the kit that you can carry and with a battery that is fully charged.
Meet at: 543 Columbus Ave., San Francisco, CA 94133
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.
