Seminar: The Secrets of Great Photographic Composition

Henry Cartier Bresson

This seminar will bring out the secrets of photographic composition as exemplified by the masters of photography and painting. We will cover topics like the golden ratio, convergence, colour theory, and mood.

With all the buzz about new gear and new technology, it is very easy to forget about the fundamentals of the photograph. In this interactive seminar we will tear apart some of the greatest photos from the world's best photographers and find out what makes them great.

No equipment is necessary but after the talk you might want to look through the lens with a whole new frame of mind!

There are 15 spots available! 
Don't miss this chance to train your eye!

    Hi Joel, I was unable to join your seminar, even if I was one of the planned attendants. Would it be possible to get any electronic document? Thank you.
