Northern Liberties

With DPA Instructor Armond Scavo




Northern Liberties is a trendy and colorful Philly neighborhood awash in lively street life.  Our morning expedition strolling 2nd Street (from Poplar to Girard) will contain views of new architecture sandwiched between old, charming buildings. Tap rooms, bowling alleys, and window displays to explore!  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor Rick Wright for a stroll along 2nd Street with your camera

You will learn a variety of new compositional and technical skills to better capture a variety of subjects and circumstances.  Rick will help you shoot in macro to capture the small details of a urban decay, utilize larger apperture settings to isolate your subjects, and experiment with different shutter speeds to blur or enhance the motion in the street.

We will meet (950AM) at the corner of Poplar and 2nd Street at a sandwich/beer shop called The Foodery.  Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and any extra equipment you might want to try out.  Travel light! You should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
