Composition is important and no matter how technically perfect, without it your image will lack clarity and impact. Tony will be discussing how “Composition” means putting elements together, to give cohesion and directing the viewer to the important parts of the image. The psychological effects of line, shape, form, tone, colour, texture, scale and proportion will be discussed to help you understand how to construct your images with purpose and clarity.
You will learn that:-
- There are no “rules” on composition, rather principles that helps to introduce clarity.
- Composing an image requires organising the visual elements in a way that helps the viewer understand what excited you when you took the photograph.
- Composition is a visual process in which the photographer aims to balance the visual elements into a coherent arrangement. As many of the concepts underpinning composition are universally understood, if you find your image pleasing to the eye, so will the viewer.
