Creative Composition Intensive | Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday | 3 – 4:30 pm

A good composition is the essence of impactful images. How do we define a “good composition?” In this course, your instructor will answer this question with tangible rules, so your technique can be more scientific than mystical. Similar to how learners of a new language use grammar to structure their sentences, aspiring photographers can use compositional elements to design their images. In this interactive class, you will be given class assignments and learn from looking at the work of other students by using an interactive blog! This online class will set you on a course to obtain great compositions intuitively.
