Urban Compositions Safari

An urban photography event.
You bet! We venture out to capture evenings of stimulating and challenging urban masterpieces in central Ottawa/Gatineau. The course is designed to extend your visual limits – to help you recognize the exceptional within the ordinary.

We pull exercises and locations from our popular courses – Night Light, Advanced Fundamentals and Urban Landscapes – to bring a light hearted, accessible photo adventure in the nature’s capital!

We cover elements of composition, colour, perspective, as well as, creative use of focus and depth of field. We will have a chance to learn about and play with different qualities of light as the day fades into night.

While ideas and exercises are presented to the group we spend one-on-one time with each participant challenging them to expand their photographic horizons at a pace that is good for them.

“Is this a digital or film course?”

It is a photography course – about creating better pictures. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Many participants bring digital cameras. Some choose film. Some bring both! Having people with both technologies on a course helps to compare the differences. Do not worry about your equipment – all you need is a 35mm SLR camera and lens(es) – “Point and shoot” cameras are welcome but will limit your opportunities on this course.
