This old world historical site offers a photographer everything from shutter speed priority exercises at the site of the waterfall remains from any of 3 pairs of millstones. Take a close up perspective of velvety smooth flow of the water or a stop action showing the water in a stop action split second depiction. Your instructor will work with you to capture all gradations of various stages of water movement and then go wider to create a tranquil waterscape framed by leafy trees and winding pathways.
Move to the old stone buildings and transport the viewer of your images to 150 years past, detailing the exteriors. Venture inside and get close up shots of tools and equipment as it was once made to last versus the built in obsolesce of products in the market place in contemporary times. The natural lighting on the brass tools and machinery make for lovely still life photos. Even the patterns of soft sunlight coming in from the windows are worth attention with your camera.
The Peirce Mill is a historic mill building located in Rock Creek Park, at Tilden Street and Beach Drive, North
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.
