Composition workshop

Move your images from good to GREAT with a little inspiration and knowledge!

This one-day workshop is a study in the art of image-making and pursuing your own style.

You will push past your camera knowledge to a new level of great photography by learning visually. You will make the most of every image, using simple and advanced techniques in design.

Topics include:

· Where to position yourself and the camera in the world (perspective and angle)

· Camera lenses, focal length and orientation

· Rule of Thirds, divine proportion, diagonals, triangles and other geometry

· Line, Shape, Form

· And much more

As you begin to “see photographically” through your viewfinder, the difference will show in your work. No matter what your favorite subject, we can help you improve your images by utilizing the elements of strong composition. All subject matters will be discussed – from people photography to landscape/nature to documentary/candid to still life photography.

This class includes several in-class exercise sessions so bring your camera gear and lenses. In addition to camera gear, please bring note-taking material to the workshop.  There will be a 30-minute snack break.  Please bring your own snacks or quick lunch.
