This seminar is designed to teach the basic rules and principles of photographic composition and aesthetics along with examples of each of them. We will begin with the most basic and we will conclude with some of the most advanced synthesis techniques that we will implement in practice. Participants will develop their sensitivity to their surroundings, concentrating on lines, shapes, light, color, and people.

First of all we have to define what is meant by ‘composition’. Composition refers to the way the various elements in a scene are arranged within the frame. That said, many of them have been used in art for thousands of years especially by ancient Greeks and they really help in making more attractive photos.

Composition is the foundation of a great picture. Knowing where to stand, understanding the angle at which you need to position your camera, and using the background to build on the image are just a few things to consider when taking a picture. During this seminar, we will analyze what works and what does’t  in order to  create great photographs. The instructors will also present compositional tools, aesthetic intentions, and effective editing.
