Course Description

ONLINE: How do your ordinary snapshots become striking images worthy of framing? Simple: by applying the concepts of photographic composition. Students will explore an array of concepts from basics like the “rule of thirds” to subtler ideas like the way the eye travels through a photo. This discussion-based course is for those using either digital cameras or smartphone cameras who want to elevate their photography skills. Topics include balance and point of view, the importance of geometry, light and color in composition, and how composition can be improved with photo-editing software. A portion of the course will focus on using black-and-white images to help students improve their composition skills and understand when and why some images can be more compelling as black-and-white prints. Students will have an opportunity to share their photographs and participate in critiquing each other's images. | Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 12.
