Columbia Pike Farmers’ Market


The weather report for DC predicts 23-24 sunny days in November so you have an opportunity to take your camera out for a spin and capture the colorful setting of an outdoor produce market, to be led by a professional photographer from Digital Photo Academy who will offer advice and demonstrations on approaching street performers and vendors in the market place, creating compelling environmental portraits. In fact, learn how to help people pose in flattering ways, using natural light, angles and tips on how to hold one’s head and hands. Learn to get the signage and colorful display in to tell a story with your photos. Help the subject be less self-conscious by holding flowers or produce or posing with a friend. Your instructor will offer techniques on capturing friends and crowds of people in a way that turns a lackluster group shot into a dynamic story with everyone looking their best. Practice with your co-participants as you get to know each other.

Then of course there is the saturated colors of the fruit, flowers and produce itself. Closeups can be captured in an inviting manner, or a broader angle to tempt the viewer with your photos so they can almost feel like they are right there with you as you capture the experience.

Call Digital Photo Academy at 1 877 372 2231. Lots of people seem to hang up if our welcome recording comes on instead of a live voice, but we promise to return your message within a day or two if you leave one with your name and number.  It would be even better if you included your e mail address as well as the date and city of the class you are considering.  If leaving a voice mail message is not your thing, please email us at DPAbooking@digitalphotoacademy.com or Richard@digitalphotoacademy.com.
