Hudson Valley

For the last 9 years, Digital Photo Academy has been based in Manhattan, New York. Certainly the photo ops are unending in that locale, as they are in the 20+ other major U.S. cities where live classes are offered. The slide show above showcases the new Digital Photo Academy headquarters and hopefully you agree that these images reflect a scenic setting for the new DPA offices as well as year round photo ops in any direction one points their lens. (Note the round stone building up on a hill, seen in the slide show during winter and fall season. That is our new headquarters, formerly a gun powder mill that was built in 1828, and owned by the Dupont family who made their fortune on gun powder sold during the Civil War. Across the way is a 41 acre park, donated to the public by the Delano family, (Franklin Delano Roosevelt). It once was the setting for the aqueduct that powered the gun powder mill and the remnants of the stone housing remain, freckled amongst small waterfalls, chimneys and fireplaces, all great for landscape and portrait shoots). In fact, the DPA team is thrilled to work out of the Hudson Valley region. Spend anytime in the area and it becomes clear as to how the late 19th century artists of the Hudson River School became the first coherent movement of American Art.

By the way, as we get settled, expect to see monthly Comp in the Field classes below as well as multi-day workshops. We are excited and hope you are as well. In addition to the DPA property, there are dozens of charming shops, landscape settings, cliffs overlooking the Hudson, Old World architecture, galleries and more that the DPA team has arranged for private access to bring photo hobbyists who hope to add great images to their portfolios.

    “Jill was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about photography and was able to answer all my questions. Even though I knew the basics on composition, I still learned a lot and even was introduced to functions on my camera I had no idea existed. This class is great for those who have never held a DSLR to those who have been shooting for a while, but want to expand their skills.
    Thank you Jill! ”

    “Justin thank you for a great class. It was fun and educational for me. I learned some things that I did not know about before. I’ve done so much reading about photography but never putting into practice what I’ve read. The class broke certain things down for me so that I understood how to get the results that I wanted.

    I love how the images came out. Especially the last one with the sparklers.

    Justin, thanks for the heads up On the intervalometer deal. I got a chance the scoop one up before the sale ended. Also thank you for the link to buying used equipment. Very useful info indeed. I’m looking for a good tripod on sale so if you come across one that’s a great deal please Let me know.

    Thanks again. It was very nice meeting everyone.

    Best regards,”

    Thanks so much for fitting me in the workshop it was a lot of fun. Here is my favorite photo of the day. This is a long exposure I took after it was dark. I think either 15 or 8 second shutter speed, adjusted in Lightroom.”

    “Hey guys,

    Chris here, just want to say that I had a great time this past Sunday with you and the rest of the group. This is my first time taking any formal instruction on photography and even though it wasn’t a technical “how to” course, I came away with a lot of good information. For example, I never realized that blue sky days were not optimal for taking landscape photographs and that the clouds help to diffuse the light for much better results. I also find myself looking at the Histogram for just about every shot whereas before I had no idea what that thing even was. I still have a lot to learn but we all have to start somewhere and I’m glad that I started with you guys. Thanks again.

    Thanks again and looking forward to working with you guys again in the future. ”

    “Dear Richard,

    love your resident groundhog. I had a wonderful time at the workshop today. Only sorry I hadn’t planned to be there through the evening. Hopefully another time. Thank you to you and Jill for graciously accepting Wookie into your animal menagerie….however I will probably leave him at home next time….easier to concentrate on photography. I hope you all got some great photos during sunset. Thanks again and best wishes to Jill for a safe and fun trip.

    Regards,”

    “First, thanks to you and Jill for your hospitality. I really appreciate it.
    Peter’s a great guy…really attentive and helpful. Thanks also for having him pick me up and drive me back to Beacon.

    On the way to Letchworth Village on Saturday morning, Anthony made a detour to show me the Greek Orthodox Church headquarters across from West Point. As I’m sure you know, it was amazingly picturesque. We had a nice group of simpatico people for the workshop, and the weather cooperated beautifully. Lethworth Village was powerfully haunting, disturbing and fascinating. I also enjoyed the cameraderie (misspelling intentional, LOL!) immensely. I’m thankful to you for suggesting that I participate, and also to Rick for adding a place for me in the group. He and Anthony were really helpful in suggesting places to shoot. The image bellow is titled “Lost Memory #3″.

    Warm regards,”

    “Hi Richard and Jill,

    It was actually very easy to export raw files as jpegs on lightroom when you know what to do (which I barely do!)

    Here is a sample of the images from Sunday, all untouched, and if you ever run into the couple we met in town who were thrilled to be photographed, please feel free to pass along their photos. They were so happy!

    Comments appreciated- (don’t worry, I have thick skin!)

    Best regards,”

    “Dear Richard and Jill,

    Thank you both for your hospitality. I thoroughly enjoyed my day of photography. Equally enjoyable was touring your lovely home, seeing some lovely water and nature locations, and experiencing Newburgh up close (so much potential there.) As soon as I have a minute (actually many minutes!) to figure out converting my raw files to jpegs to send, I will pass along some of my images.

    Thank you both again. I’m sure you’ll see me at another workshop!”

    Looking forward to another workshop.”

    Thank you, Richard and Jill, for your hospitality and the great workshop.
    Also many thanks to Gerald Berliner for great presentations throughout the day.
    Not to mention Gerald’s one-on-one with attendees in the field.
    The shooting locations provided a variety of scenes.
    I found opportunity to use my Nikon 14-24, 24-70 and Micro Nikkor 60mm lenses. Also, ND filters came in handy for those long exposures.

    I highly recommend workshops at the Digital Photo Academy.
    I plan on attending more workshops in the future.

    Again many thanks to all!

    “for masterminding such a great workshop, opening your lovely home, and even making me coffee to take me through the afternoon of waterfall and sunset.

    I couldn’t imagine a better teacher than Gerald. In short, he taught me how to use my camera. Although I missed the morning lesson and probably made him repeat countless points, he was clear and patient in his guidance and enthusiastically reviewed my pictures.

    I totally enjoyed myself today and hope you guys got something out of it too other than a messy dining room table!

    Best wishes to you both.”
