About This Class

This is the first lesson in a series on photographic composition. We will begin our work with a discussion of picture elements and then move on to the first compositional technique, the rule of thirds. I will explain all terminology regarding picture elements and the rule of thirds and how they are used to create compelling images. Then I will demonstrate how and when you would use this compositional theory to improve your images. Finally, we’ll summarize the technique and show examples where are has been appropriately applied.
Students working at all levels will benefit from this knowledge.
