Virtual Workshop

If you’re like many outdoor photographers, you love to explore nature, find beautiful scenes and interesting moments to photograph – but you struggle to translate that experience into your images.

Or, perhaps you’ve come home with some “keepers” after you’ve spent thousands of dollars on photography workshops, and you’d like to know how to continue that momentum after the workshop.

Wouldn’t it be nice to figure out how to capture the mood or feeling of a moment even in your own local landscape?

“Learn the rules of composition and then break them.” 

I’ve never found this advice to be very helpful, have you?

What You'll Learn Instead:

There’s a better way to learn photography composition.

From Our Students:

"As with all the courses Brenda does she is well prepared, the concepts are clear and the examples are good. I got a lot out of the course."
"This workshop was packed with useful information. It will take me many hours in the field to unpack and put to use everything that Brenda conveyed in these two short hours of instruction!"
"The best thing about this workshop is that I got to hear what Brenda's thought process was while composing her photos. Also seeing what did and didn't work (and why it didn't work) from the creator's point of view in a live presentation was so much more instructive than reading it out of a book."
"The workshop was very well organized and the materials were professionally presented in a very clear and concise manner. I learned a lot and feel that my money was well spent."
"The workshop was well structured and very informative. A great resource to any photographer."
"I have spent more than a quarter-century in classrooms and heard countless lectures. During my professional life, I have listened to many, many presentations. Your presentation was one of the best. I was quite impressed. Thanks for doing such a great job."

Who Is Compose With Clarity For? 

The Compose With Clarity Virtual Workshop is designed for hobbyist photographers who have a good working knowledge of how to use their cameras, a good understanding of exposure, and would like to know how to approach the process of composition in a more creative way to create photographs they love.
