Balboa Park

Balboa Park is the nation’s largest urban cultural park.  Home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens, and the San Diego Zoo, the Park has an ever-changing calendar of museum exhibitions, plays, musicals, concerts, and classes—all in the beautiful and timeless setting of this must-see San Diego attraction!  So join your Digital Photo Academy instructor and go see it through your camera lens!

The Park’s historic architecture and botanical garden provide countless image opportunities.  Experiment with macro photography to capture beautiful close-ups of blossoming flowers and enhance the tiny details of a leaf.  Your instructor will teach you how to bring out the colors of the flora and blur the background to show just the flower that you want to capture.

You will also learn new techniques to shoot a variety of architecture.  Learn how to find new angles and discover ways to balance different shapes and sizes of buildings and statues.  Play with wide-angle shots of buildings and highlight the small details found on church pillars.

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.
