This class is for anybody who wants to create visually compelling photographs. You will learn photographic composition – a crucial element for great photos.
Whether you realise it or not, composition is the first thing people see in a photograph. It is common that many photographers encounter difficulties with composition.Alan will discuss the importance of proportion in photographic composition, starting off with the photographic frame, and then moving onto subject placement, and then going to more specific forms of proportion such as balance, the rule of thirds, golden ratio and its variants.
Geometry & Lines.
This course will look at the rules and conventions of composition, and also when you should break them. Alan will also talk on some of the processes of composition, lens choice and visualisation.
Building on what you learn about proportion, you will add geometry and lines to the equation, and will explore how the use of verticals, diagonals, and horizontal lines affect your images as well as how various shapes can be utilised in isolation and in patterns.
