The specific Digital Point and Shoot or SLR camera is not as relevant for our various Composition in the Field classes around the country because the essence of these classes is about LEARNING TO FIND POWERFUL PHOTOS in whichever setting you find yourself. The instructor walks with you and the other students in a photogenic setting, whether it is Hyde Park, Chicago, Fisherman's Wharf, SF, or Eldridge St. Synagogue, Chinatown/NYC, etc. and explains how the visual content can be analyzed for you to shoot interesting compositions. Various principles will be explained like Rule of Thirds, Depth of Field, Leading Lines and more. You are able to learn these principles and use them with your Point and Shoot or D-SLR. Click on the link below to access the landing page on the Digital Photo Academy website that explains in further detail, including a 9 minute video segment that shows highlights from a typical Composition in the Field class. We do hundreds of them around the country including lots of locations in your city. http://www.digitalphotoacademy.com/Workshops/workshopInfo/8691 Also, we have provided the link to the Digital Photo Academy Intermediate Class landing page in case you decide to invest $65 for a 4 hour class that will have you sitting in a class room with a about 6 or 7 others where the instructor walks each person through their camera controls so everyone has direction on how and when to access every feature on their respective camera, including what settings enable the shooter to get which effect. The presentation also shows you the photographic effect that each camera control allows you to achieve, by projecting the beautiful images that our various instructors around the country have shot. Additionally, note we have posted a link that will access a CAMERA SETTING Chart for every manufactured camera in the market place. Click on that and you can then click on the manufacturer that matches your camera and you will see all the symbols found on your camera. Bring it to class so you can easily keep up with the instructor's power point lecture. There is also a 20 to 30 minute portion of the class where you actually do a little practice shooting under the tutelage of the instructor. Go to the landing page accessible from the link below and after you read the copy, look for the image of the man in the dark wool cap, leaning against the lamp post to access a short highlights video that gives you a sense of this class. http://www.digitalphotoacademy.com/Workshops/workshopInfo/41 Click on http://www.digitalphotoacademy.com/DpaObjects/viewObject/4478 and you can get a chart that shows all the menu symbols of all cameras, including yours. If you want to access this page on our site on your own, just go to the HOME PAGE, run your mouse on the INSTRUCTOR TIPS SECTION and CLICK ON CAMERA SETTINGS in the Drop Down menu.

Q:

I didn't see any minimum purchase number for this deal (e.g. you must sell 50 for the deal to go through). Is there one? If not, I purchased 2 of the two session composition in the field workshops for my daughter & I yesterday morning. I checked for an email & I still don't have one. I checked with my credit card & there are no pending charges. Can you update me on what the status of my order is? Thanks!

Bobbi B.  asked on  May 30, 2012

A:

Bobbi, there is no minimum number of sales required for this. You and your daughter can attend any Composition in the Field class you like. Feel free to call us at 212 979 5457 and we can help you select and register you over the phone. There will be no credit card charge since you purchased through Groupon. Thanks for your support.

Q:

Does this Groupon qualify for the "intermediate classes" or just the "composition in the field" classes?

Andrew M.  asked on  May 29, 2012

A:

The Intermediate class is not redeemable through Groupon but the 4 hours of instruction costs only $65 and you will be instructed on all the menu items and controls of your D-SLR. Click on the link below to learn more about the class. The landing page includes a 5 minutes Video highlight to give you a sense of this class if you click on the arrow on the page that is illustrated with a man in a black wool cap, holding a camera, leaning against a lamppost. http://www.digitalphotoacademy.com/Workshops/workshopInfo/41

Q:

Do you have to be a professional. Photographer to take this class? I have no experience in photography , however I have a great digital camera and love taking pictures... Dawn

Dawn m.  asked on  May 29, 2012

A:

Actually Dawn, our instructors are pro photographers but hardly any of the students are pro shooters. I am sure you would fit in just fine if you want to learn how to improve the composition of your photographs.
