Twenty Strategies in Composition

Mark will speak to us on the topic of Photo Composition an essential component to compelling images.  The premise “seeing the photo” actually begins with an understanding of compositional techniques such as leading lines, juxtaposition, depth of field, break in patterns, and so many more. Without composition, photographs are without interest, confusing and lack the critical story telling function that make the image relevant. While many are aware of perhaps the rule-of-thirds, there are so many more. Mark will share images and discuss compositional techniques in an open format that allows for discussion. Please join us for a wonderful two hours on Tuesday, January 07, 2020 at the 101 Photo Club.
