Composition Crash Course

Saturday, March 17

Art Downtown

You need more then a good camera and the technical know-how to make really good pictures. Good composition makes all the difference. Luckily, it’s a skill that can be learned! In this workshop you will learn key design and composition tips that will help create interest and structure in your photos. You’ll also learn the basic compositional do’s and dont’s, how to train your eye to find the right balance between subjects and backgrounds, how to lead your viewer’s eye and how to use focus, color, and perspective to create dynamic images. Once you have learned these skills, you will have the confidence and creative vision to make better pictures.
