Composition might be the single most important aspect of photography. A photograph can have a great subject, beautiful light, and vibrant color, but if it doesn’t also have a strong composition it won’t tell the story you’re trying to tell.

In this workshop we’ll use a new online format to help you strengthen your compositional skills, and learn how to convey a mood and message through your photographs.

I’ll give in-depth presentations covering multiple aspects of composition, including advanced topics like balance, visual flow, creating depth, and visual language, then show how you can use those elements to make more powerful images.

We’ll also conduct group image reviews to reinforce the lessons given in the presentations. Image reviews have proven to be highly valuable learning experiences during our in-person workshops. People find they learn as much from analyzing other people’s photographs as their own, and that discussing what works and what doesn’t work in a variety of images helps them absorb and retain fundamental concepts of composition more deeply. We’ll replicate that experience online by reviewing one photograph from each participant, with a special emphasis on composition, mood, and visual storytelling.

The workshop will take place over two days (Saturday and Sunday). All sessions will be live and interactive, and total about six hours each day (with a break for lunch). Sessions will also be recorded so participants can review them later. The workshop is suitable for all photographers except real beginners.

We hope you can join us!
