About This Class

Taking the time to "see like a photographer" is a great way to instantly improve the quality of your photographs. Improving your understanding of composition will create an instant difference in the quality of your images.

In this class, students will learn to see and think about differences in light, as well as many of the basic rules of composition. We will practice these skills by completing a series of challenges. In the end, each student should have a set of images that demonstrate the different rules, but are also fun and interesting images for their portfolios. 

Some of the rules of composition we will cover are:

  • Rule of Thirds
  • Leading Lines and Curves
  • Line and Form
  • Framing
  • Repeaing Element or Pattern
  • Symmetry
  • Texture and Detail


The focus of this class is to get out shooting, practicing, and improving your skill. The best way to learn photography is to accept the challenge and get out and practice!
