DPA Workshop - Oakland Cemetery

We're very pleased to announce a new "Composition In The Field" workshop being held in conjunction with the Digital Photo Academy!

Join Ken Ross August 17th, 10am-1pm, for a hands-on composition workshop while exploring historic Oakland Cemetery. Oakland Cemetery is much more than an outstanding example of a Victorian garden cemetery. It is also a magnificent sculpture garden, botanical garden, flourishing wildlife habitat, public park, and picturesque setting for making dynamic images. Oakland’s funerary art is unequaled in the area.

If you're just getting started with photography this will be a great class for you! Not only will we be covering composition but I'll also make sure you have all photography basics so you'll come away with an excellent understanding of Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual Mode, reading your histogram, white balance, and more! You'll learn new compositional skills that can be applied during the class and give you a solid grounding to build on. Experiment with different angles and play with light and shadow bouncing off of the sculptures. Create different moods with your photographs, from romantic to somber, as you work in various settings and colors.

This is a 3hr class with a maximum of 10 students. Priced at $99 from DPA, F/2 Photo School students can sign up for just $49!!


Since this is being done in partnership with Digital Photo Academy you will need to register through their site. Once you've done that, please do RSVP here just to help us keep track of everyone who's going. Be sure to tell DPA that you are an F/2 Photo School student so you get the discount rate!


You can get more details on the class here and follow this link for registration.

Please don't RSVP for this class until after you register on the DPA site.


I'm a huge fan of shooting in Oakland and I hope you'll be able to join me exploring this wonderful venue as we also explore light, shadow, and composition!

    I'm confused! Start time here says 10am, but the DPA site says we meet in the parking lot at Oakland at 9am...

      Hi Laura, it looks like they just didn't change the 9am reference on the description. That IS a bit confusing to be sure! I'll let them know to correct it - thanks for letting me know!
