This course is for those who want to elevate their photography skills and learn how to turn an ordinary snapshot into a striking image worthy of framing. Students will explore the concepts of photographic composition, from basics, such as the rule of thirds, to more advanced topics, such as the way the eye travels through a photo. Topics include composition fundamentals, such as balance and point of view; the importance of geometry, light, and color in composition; and how composition can be improved with photo-editing software. Students will have an opportunity to share their photographs and participate in critiquing others' images. Come along and take a chance to move outside your comfort zone and take better photographs. • Active participation.
