Learn to enhance your photography skills with compositional tips
when you join this event!
As a photographer it is easy to get stuck in always placing the subject of an image in the middle of the frame. It is also easy to quickly capture something that looks interesting in the world without taking the time to be creative and look at it from different angles. The arrangement of elements within a photograph is an important aspect to consider when taking photographs. Types of composition like The Rule of Thirds and Leading Lines along with others mentioned in this event, are based on what we know about how the human eye naturally scans an image and exploits it to achieve more eye-catching images. This event not only explains six techniques relating to composition, but also provides many images that help illustrate the success of them.
