What you'll learn in this composition class:

Dating back centuries, Green Hill Park, initially was a wild and untouched landscape but at some point because it became a farm the grounds have evolved into a photographer’s dream, and, at 300 acres. is now Worcester’s largest public park.

Visit Green Hill Park more than once because the photo ops are endless including 2 ponds for waterscape photography, an arboretum, many trails and even sports fields where one can learn the art of capturing movement and action and much more.

Your Digital Photo Academy instructor will have the opportunity to demonstrate composition strategies for architecture thanks to the farm and estate on the acreage which allows a variety of perspectives to create a variety of different visual energies. There is also a Viet Nam Veterans memorial site.

There is also a collection of farm animals which create a different photo op for charming portraits and landscapes.

In addition to wooded areas, there are also many vistas, elevated atop a hill, allowing for portfolio-worthy scenic images.

Depending on the time of day, the DPA instructor can offer lessons on 3 different lighting scenarios including, daylight, sunset and the light that offers the most potential, BLUE LIGHT, 20 minutes after the sun sets. (Also BLUE LIGHT comes with willing clouds to project glorious colors 20 minutes BEFORE sunrise, but the park, which closes at 10 PM, does not open until sunrise which is 20 minutes too late to catch early BLUE LIGHT.)

Meet your instructor in front of the single story red farm which is visible where there is also free parking. You will see your portrait opportunities as well because this is where the farm animals are.

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.
