About This Class

This class introduces you to composition in photography. Because the way in which you place objects and other elements in your photo DOES matter!

You will learn what works and what doesn't, and tips & tricks that will change the way you see composition. By the end of the class, you will be ready to show off your photography skills and hopefully have your own project in the making.

The class project is creating a visual diary on Instagram for a month, a sort of 30-days challenge, in which you will try to include all the elements you’ve learned here.

The class is designed for beginners, people who want to learn more about photography, about Instagram, and also for those who just want to do something creative in their free time - no prior experience required!

I believe that change is the only constant of our lives and that it is never too late to start learning. In love with all things visual, I could never choose between film and graphic design. The process of building something complex and touching from a simple idea is what fascinates me the most in both.
I want to change/be changed and I want to inspire it, even if it is on a small scale. And in the meantime, to immerse myself in more images.
