Composition: Photography Workshop
The objective of this course is to teach the guidelines of composition to new photographers. Although many established photographers tend to think that there is no such things as “correct composition”, you will learn why these guidelines exist and can then choose if you will abide by them or not. After you learn about composition, your eyes will start to notice the interesting forms that are surrounding you. Once you have taken notice, all you have to do is appropriately position yourself to catch it in your viewfinder. We will discuss where the theories of composition derive from to better understand their relevance in making an interesting photo.
This workshop will teach you:
- The theories of the rule of thirds, filling the frame, perspective, balance, leading lines, symmetry, patterns, background, depth, and cropping
- The history of the theory of composition
- Where to place your subject to create more interesting photos
You will leave the class trusting you photographic judgment, eventually feeling that the composition guidelines are second nature to you.
The workshop lasts 3 hours and is split into three sections: a theoretic explanation, a hands on practice session, and a debriefing of the class at a near by café. During the debriefing, we will review and discuss the class’ photographs.
The class takes place outdoors at Flagey in Ixelles and will end by the Abbaye de la Cambre.
Photographers need to bring their own digital, film, or Polaroid camera. There is a Canon 60D that is available to rent for 20 euros. Obviously, if a photographer brings a film camera, they will not be able to have their results reviewed.
