Eastern State Penitentiary


Date: Saturday, June 30 2012


Time: 10am to 1pm


with DPA Instructor Bill Blanchard


Walking into the Eastern State Penitentiary is like stepping back in time...almost.  This once state-of-the-art humanitarian prison has been preserved in its decay.  The endless corridors feature walls of peeling paint and light pooling in from various openings and windows.  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor in the prison for a shoot that's a bit off the beaten path.

The Penitentiary is an excellent place to try out different forms of composition and practice other techniques.  Your DPA Instructor will teach you new ways to play with light and shadow bouncing off of the floors, accentuate the colors of the peeling paint, and capture the details of the cracked walls.

We will meet outside of the Eastern State Penitentiary located at 2027 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19130.  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 also wear comfortable shoes.
