Online Learning Class via Zoom

Ever wonder how two people can stand in the same spot, point their camera at the same subject but return with completely different ways of interpreting the identical scene? Building and making a photograph is like piecing together a puzzle. Creating an image in-camera is making a series of decisions and choices. The goal is to build a strong enough composition to guide the viewer’s eye to the most important elements of your image.

This new teen course, devoted entirely to composition and photographic design, will help you develop the way you see and pre-visualize your images so the tools and ingredients can help you achieve more compelling, meaningful images. We will focus on dissecting topics such as the elements of design and how to arrange objects in the camera vertically and horizontally, using color vs. black and white, color theory discuss how color adds emotion to an image, and how to arrange an image within the rule of thirds. We will discuss important composition topics such as unity, balance, movement, rhythm, focus, contrast, pattern, proportion, color and light. Further, we will study and compare the compositional elements of different styles of photography from documentary to still life.

Expect to dabble in street photography, portraiture, landscape and still life using the tools you learn in this class to apply to a variety of photographic specialties. How you see, approach and build an image is what will set you apart from the person standing next to you. A well-constructed photo does not happen by accident. This class will empower you toward making a great photograph, rather than taking one.

A Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera or digital mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings is highly recommended for this class. However, all types of cameras are welcome, including film cameras.
