Elfreth’s Alley and Ben Franklin Bridge

As far as interesting neighborhoods go, Philadelphia has many. Perhaps one of the most interesting is the Elfreth’s Alley and Ben Franklin Bridge Area.

The Ben Franklin bridge, officially the Delaware River Bridge, was built in 1926 and held the record for the longest suspension bridge in the world for three years.

Capture portraits of civilians jogging, walking, or just enjoying the scenery. Your DPA instructor will teach you skills like panning, so you can create the illusion of motion in a still image.

Here, you can see DPA students shooting from a variety of different angles and lighting situations. You will learn how to use these strategies to make your photographs more interesting and eye-catching.

Industrial scenery surrounds the bridge, creating an opportunity for edgy, architectural photography.

Elfreth’s Alley, adjacent to the bridge, is known for its status as the oldest residential street in America. Here, you will learn more tips and techniques for creating compelling images of the cobblestone streets and old houses. This class allows you to shoot both historical and urban areas of the city.
