MaS Member Event - Introduction to Composition

Composition and design principles can really make a picture go from a snapshot to a piece of art.  This member meetup gives a quick basic taste on composition principles and elements

I (Trent) personally loved composition classes because you can't break rules if you don't know them.  I loved telling my students to invent their own look, but be aware of composition rules so you can also go back to them as a safety net.

Things we will cover

- Basic introduction to compositional elements

Rule of thirds, Balance, Color, Leading Lines,  And more
- Applying these elements to photography
- Breaking down famous photographs and current photographs into compositional elements
- Question and Answer session

By the end of this lecture you will have an understanding of compositional elements.

This is a MaS member Event, free to all MaS members. Not a member? For only $25 you will pay for a one year membership and have access to free member shoots, classes, lectures and more.

    I was like an old dog and learned some new tricks. The information was well presented in an understandable format.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
