Undoubtedly the National Cathedral in all its grandeur has been photographed millions of times over the years, from locals to international travelers. Why not, it is an amazing structure both inside and outside and resulting photographs likely hang on walls and grace portfolios of favorite images.
However, these images herein clearly convey that some photos are stronger and more powerful than others. Join our DPA instructor at the Incubus, for an up front session on photographing indoor and outdoor spaces of architectural splendor.
You will learn some valuable lessons in photographic techniques at the National Cathedral. Our instructor will be there to provide hands on suggestions. After 3 hours in the field you will be able to make the mundane into a powerful image.
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.
$12 charge to enter the Cathedral. $8 for seniors and students or persons under 17
Exact meeting place will be emailed to registrants.
