What You'll Get


Digital Photo Live In-the-Field Workshop @ Chatfield Reservoir

If you want to render captivating waterscape shots with waterfalls big and small, as well as whimsical images of dogs at play on both land and water and cyclist enjoying the scenery, then you will drive about 25 miles from Denver, to Littleton, Mary Carter Greenway, near the Chatfield reservoir. We will meet at the end of S Platte Reservoir Road in the Black Lake Parking lot. Map and directions attached. The cyclists and dogs are great vehicles for your DPA Instructor to help you access the shutter speed priority on your camera and make stop action, blurred images as well panning of your subjects. We may even catch a few rafters in the Platte. The Platte River and Chatfield State Park offers many portfolio-worthy images.

We will start photographing at the Platte River where the big and small waterfalls offer unlimited variety of water picture opportunities; grand landscape, macro, and abstract. The unleashed dog park is a total kick to get whimsical stop-action or blurred shots of the canines at play. Some owners may even let us use their dogs for portraits.

Your instructor will meet you at the black rock lake parking lot off S Platt Reservoir Road. To get there take CO 470 and exit on the Platte Canyon Road exit. Turn right or north on South Platte Road. South Platte Reservoir Road is the first road on the right (just past the rental place) Easy to miss.  Black Rock Lake parking lot is at the very end of the road. Bring shoes that are good on rocks and don’t mind getting wet.

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.
