Commanding Composition

January 29 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am EST

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. I would appreciate your posting below if you plan to come or if you have any comments afterward. If you’d like to keep up with what is happening with me and my next workshop or presentation, sign up for my newsletter. I do tutoring and mentoring if you’d like something in-depth and specialized just for you and your needs. If you’d like to see what is on the calendar at this moment, click here. And as always, if there is ever anything that I can do to help you, please contact me.
