The University of Pennsylvania

Since it opened its gates in 1751, the University of Pennsylvania has been one of the country’s top institutions — an Ivy League university excelling in research, medicine, and business.  Aside from their academics though, UPenn also shines architecturally, with stone castles covered in ivy, gothic brick towers, and slick modern buildings.  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor as you and your camera take a tour of UPenn’s architecture.

UPenn is like a world of its own.  In addition to the gorgeous buildings lining campus, it is also a little bubble in bustling Philadelphia where undergraduate students lounge on the lawns, graduate students stress over dissertations, and professors sip coffee while grading papers.  Catch unique action shots of friends playing frisbee, photograph beautiful portraits of students, and capture precious candids of families strolling through campus.

Shooting with your instructor, you will learn new approaches to photographing different types of architecture, art work, and people.  Discover ways to find balance in the various shapes and sizes of buildings and statues, experiment with unique angles, and capture the sun’s reflection off of classroom windows.

Learn how to utilize greenery or clouds as your backdrop, capture student life, and change your approach depending on the style of architecture, from gothic to modern.

We will meet outside of the UPenn Regional Office, located at 3451 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.  Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and the equipment that you can carry.  You should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.

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.
