$49 for a Composition in the Field Photography Workshop ($99 Value)

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. In past courses, students have captured images of Mission Beach, Old Town Transit Center, and 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. Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations and taught by Christian Michaels, Fred Greaves, and William Morton.

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.
