Composition in the Field workshops equip students with the skills to evoke surprising imagery from everyday surroundings. During each open-air outing, an experienced photographer guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces. Students choose from various times and locations, from snapfests of the crashing waves at Mission Beach to the antique structures of the Old Town Transit Center, to the colorful spectrum of architecture on Coronado Island. Participants should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of their picturesque locale.
Digital Photo Academy
As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in. Since 2007, the business has facilitated workshops that explore all aspects of digital imagery, from operating cameras and uploading digital files to editing images and airbrushing realistic mustaches. Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
