About This Course

This Photography Composition course is an essential stepping stone for any aspiring photographer, regardless of the camera equipment in their arsenal. The course's focus is on easy-to-understand concepts and techniques that are certain to yield immediate improvements in your photography. Each lesson is designed to gradually introduce students to a variety of composition principles and provide them with the knowledge they need to apply these principles in their work.

Among the topics explored are key composition techniques such as the use of leading lines and the rule of thirds. Leading lines are powerful visual guides that draw the viewer's attention towards the focal point of an image. Meanwhile, the rule of thirds, arguably the most renowned composition rule, involves breaking the image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have nine parts, and then placing your subject along these lines to create more balanced and engaging photos.

In addition to these, you'll be familiarized with the fundamental art of framing. Framing involves positioning elements within your image in such a way that they surround your main subject and naturally guide the viewer's eye towards it. This technique can be accomplished by utilizing both natural and artificial structures to form a 'frame' within the frame.

The course also covers the effective use of negative space - the empty space around the subject. When used correctly, negative space can add a sense of balance and contrast, enhancing the impact of your main subject. Furthermore, you'll also discover how to creatively crop your photos. Cropping is a powerful post-processing tool that can dramatically change the composition and overall feel of an image.

By employing these straightforward yet transformative techniques, your photos will not only have improved aesthetically, but they'll also have the potential to communicate more effectively and evoke stronger emotional responses. This course will empower you with the confidence and knowledge to start taking control of your photographic composition and begin producing beautifully composed images.
