If you want an image to tell a story or have visual impact then you need to know the tools that can help you achieve this. In this one day workshop we will be examining aspects of composition from a variety of angles to equip you to create better images. Improve your composition skills and your photography will take huge leaps forward. Composition is an essential ingredient for photography. Understanding it is just as important as growing your control of light.

Many photographers learn the so-called “Rule of Thirds” quite early on. Sadly, many also get stuck there! Far from being a fixed rule, this is just one of many tools available to photographers. If you want to be more creative and move beyond simplistic, limiting thinking then this day is for you. We will look at high quality photos as well as paintings from the masters to explore how composition has been understood by the best in the business. You will gain inspiration for new images to create as well as the skills to start to unpick images for yourself to see what is working and what is less effective.

This training day is suitable for photographers of any level from beginner to professional. If you feel you have a limited understanding of composition or are looking for fresh ideas then join us on this creative journey. It doesn’t matter what style of photography you prefer. You will learn concepts that can be applied to fashion, landscape, commercial, wedding and other genres of photography. These are transferable skills that will help you improve in the short and long term.

Spaces are limited to ensure a great learning environment for everyone. Drinks will be provided. Please bring your own lunch.
