About This Class


In these short and sweet series of “Travel Photography for Beginners” classes I will talk about light, composition, making portraits and some other helpful tips you may find quite useful. I decided to break these topics into separate classes so it will be easier to digest.

This is the second class of the series and here I will talk about Composition

  • What to look for in a picture?
  • How capturing details can help you tell a fuller story about your traveling?
  • Why looking back is a good thing?
  • Why places overcrowded with tourists aren't’ necessary a bad thing (photography wise)  and many more.

So, press enroll button and lets talk about composition!

Oh, one more thing!

I highly recommend taking the four-class series. Together, these courses will give you an excellent background to taking memorable travel pictures with good light, compelling composition and interesting people. The final course is a summary of using the essential tools in Lightroom – very useful especially if you decide to shoot in RAW format. The presentation is pleasant, easy to understand and uses very appropriate visual samples to illustrate the instruction.
Excellent class, great techniques explained well. Good use of example photos. Class project is a great idea.
