“Better Photos Through Composition“
As most photographers know, the are basic compositional elements we can use to improve our photography (rule of thirds, balance, etc). However, there are several others which can be used, either as a stand alone composition or in conjunction with one or more other elements. Many photographers, especially newer ones, may stick to a couple of favorites and seasoned professionals may have forgot a few, as we all can get stuck in our ways. This seminar will act as a reminder of various compositional elements and new ones for the beginner.
