Composition

 

 

Seeing the Subject

Presented by Brian Rabin

 

Workshop Details

Build on your knowledge of exposure with an understanding of composition. Brian will help you gain a thorough understanding of how composition affects the outcome of your images in this workshop focused on teaching you how to see the subject.

 

What you’ll Lean

Composition is the counterpart to exposure value. This 3 part class will include an evening lecture that explores the mechanics of composition, a Saturday morning photo walk at Queens Salvage Yard in Denver, and an evening critique of the students work at Mikes Camera in Boulder.

 

Session 1 Evening Lecture

Students will receive first an outline of composition fundamentals giving them a good foundation to work with. Next, Brian will expand on the images of well renowned photographers and emphasize to the class how they used the rules of composition to make their work successful.

 

Session 2 Hands on Workshop

This will be a 2 hour Saturday morning group photo walk in which students will be able to practice the rules of composition and gain valuable hands on shooting experience.

 

Session 3 Follow up Critique

During the week following the walk, students will gather to present and critique three of their images from Saturday’s shoot. The group will discuss what techniques really worked, and what did not work as well. You’ll be astonished by the immense variety of images that will have been captured and spend some time giving and receiving positive and informative feedback.

 

Workshop Requirements

This is a follow up class to Exposure Values. Completion of the Exposure Values class is required or equal working knowledge of camera exposures.
