COMPOSITION IN STILL PHOTOGRAPHY
With our latest phones and accelerating technological advancements, everyone is a photographer, but how many of us are skilled is the question? With increasing content consumption there is a dire need for one to stand apart from the crowd and one aspect of photography is composition.
The participants will be trained in framing, rules of composition, how to use lines and shapes and work with perspective and symmetry. They will also learn changing focal length and using different camera positions to capture the soul of the picture. The participants will understand the use of black and white Vs colour to create pictures that tell a story.
The 3-day weekend evening workshop over 2 hours on the first day and 3 hours on the latter two days will have lots of exercises and feed back on the photographs taken. They will be able to discern the difference between looking and seeing.
- Practice exercises
- Live online lectures
- Peer to peer feedbacks
- Personal attention by Faculty
At the end of the workshop, participants will have enhanced composition skills which will be reflected in every photograph they shoot.
