Hermann Park offers a dizzying array of photo ops, particularly at sunset. For example, we will meet at the Sam Houston Statue and then saunter over to Miller Hill, the highest point in the park, to enjoy and photograph the sprawling landscape at that hour. Your Digital Photo Academy instructor, will talk to you about lighting and composition strategies which you can make use of for all future photo shoots.Additionally, there are photos to be taken at McGovern Lake, with a 20 foot fountain in its center and soothing reflections of the skies as well as swans swimming who will happily pose and require no model releases. Not far off is the McGovern Gardens for a big variety of flower shoots.
At the other end of the Sam Houston statue is an Egyptian Obelisk including its mirror image in the adjacent reflecting pool. There is an art to best captures of reflections and your Digital Photo Academy instructor, has tried and true techniques. He will demonstrate and supervise on this photo theme as well as a number of other easy-to-learn photo composition techniques.
Meet at the Sam Houstion statue. Parking is near by including a free lot paid parking but if the lot is full.
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.
