Photography as an art form has so many aspects — impact, presentation, technical skills, storytelling, and many others. What I have found is that composition is the most straightforward aspect to learn to improve your photography quickly. Composition uses various “rules” to control the viewer’s experience within the frame and to increase visual interest. This is generally not too hard to learn, but it is hard to remember to apply in the excitement of the photographic process. We will be reviewing a plethora of basic and advanced “rules”–as well as how and when to apply them. We’ll review rules like the rule of thirds, perspective, leading lines, depth, framing, how the eye moves through the image, and more. We will also discuss when to break the rules.
