Colma, the Town of Many Cemeteries
Just 20 minutes south of San Francisco is the Colma, also known as the “City of Silence.” WIth the charm of the small town that it is, 1500 residents, there are 1.5 million people in final rest underground across 16 cemeteries. Some people may view such a setting as morbid, but others may envision photo ops of every kind, on the beautiful grounds of any of the places of rest as well as the interiors and exteriors of the grand cathedrals that pepper the community. Your DPA instructor will offer insights into capturing interesting perspectives of the architecture, as well as creating gothic narratives on the cemetery grounds themselves. Additionally there will be lessons on working with ambient lighting, in the church interiors, catching the rich glow of woodwork as well as heavenly light streaming in from stained glass windows. Originally built as a necropolis in 1924, there are also an array of photos ops via the long standing installations such as the Cypress Lawn Funeral Trolley now on permanent display.
Meet your instructor at Panero Bread at 307 Gellert Blvd, Daly City, CA 94015 and the photo tour will take you to landscape, architecture and interior photo ops that will impart a number of composition and lighting tips to develop your photo portfolio.
