Society Hill, a neighborhood in the center city section of Philadelphia, contains the largest concentration of original 18th and early 19th century architecture of any place in the United States. It features cobblestone streets bordered by brick rowhouses in Federal and Georgian architectural styles.
This class will focus on outdoor photography using natural light. You will learn how to utilize your camera settings to create a correct exposure as the light changes.
Society Hill is full of objects that make perfect natural frames, such as trees, archways, and gates. Framing is a very important compositional skill, because it helps you isolate your main subject from the rest of your image. Good framing will result in a more focused photograph – the viewer’s eye will be drawn naturally to the main point of interest.
Experiment with different camera angles – try high and low angles and see which you like better. Always try to remember your point of view – shoot up on objects to make them look more powerful, or shoot down to make your subject less imposing.
Please bring a fully charged digital camera, and any other photographic equipment you would like to use during the class. Please dress for the weather and wear your most comfortable shoes.
