Briefly...

The objective of this course is to teach the guidelines of composition to new photographers. Although many established photographers tend to think that there is no such thing as “correct composition”, you will learn why these guidelines exist and can then choose if you will abide by them or not. After you learn about composition, your eyes will start to notice the interesting shapes that are surrounding you.

Composing and Analyzing Images

3h30

The objective of this course is to teach the guidelines of composition to new photographers. Although many established photographers tend to think that there is no such thing as “correct composition”, you will learn why these guidelines exist and can then choose if you will abide by them or not. After you learn about composition, your eyes will start to notice the interesting shapes surrounding you. Once you have become aware of them, all you have to do is appropriately position yourself to see them appear in your viewfinder. We will discuss where the theories of composition derive from in order to have a better understanding of how relevant they are in making an interesting photo. 

This workshop will teach you:

- The theories of the rule of thirds, filling the frame, perspective, balance, leading lines, symmetry, patterns, background, depth, and cropping

- The history of the theory of composition

- Where to place your subject to make more interesting photos

You will leave the class trusting your photographic judgment, maybe even feeling that the composition guidelines are second nature to you. 

The workshop is split into three sections: a theoretical explanation, a hands-on practice session, and a debriefing of the class at a nearby café. During the debriefing, we will review and discuss the class’ photographs. 

The workshop is composed of a theoretical part, practical training and a debriefing.
