Learn the rules of composition and then break them.”

Look up ‘photography composition’ on the Internet, and you’re likely to come across an endless number of resources that suggest this approach to learning composition.  

I’ve never found this advice to be very helpful, though, have you?  It’s vague and downplays the importance of using structure as the backbone of creativity.

What You’ll Learn Instead

In this workshop, you’ll gain a solid understanding of how compositional elements and the tools of compositional arrangement work together to create a compelling landscape or nature image.

You will learn how to see light, lines, shapes, color, contrast, and many other elements in a scene, and how they can be used to support your main subject. 

You’ll also gain insights into how different compositional arrangements (rule of thirds, dynamic symmetry, golden ratio, etc.) are used to strengthen your visual message based on how our brains perceive information. 

You will also receive a simple and actionable six-step process for how to approach composition that eliminates confusion, indecision, and frustration.  You will learn how to compose with clarity!
