If you’ve been around here a while you know I’ve been on a bit of a tear about the importance of composition in making images that connect: images that do more than just get a like on Facebook or Instagram. And I’ve been around long enough to know that this is the big hurdle of most photographers – sure, we can master focus and exposure pretty quickly, but using those – and all the other elements and decisions at our disposal to make great photographs – photographs that connect and captivate? That’s a whole other story. So I’ve put together 3 videos to discuss and explore this. The first of these videos is available today and the next two will be out in the next two weeks – and once you watch this one I’ll email you as soon as the next two get posted.
*If you’re already on my mailing list and getting The Contact Sheet, you’ll have already received an email from me today – just follow the links in that email and you won’t have to enter your email again.
In this first video I address the big struggles that many of you shared over the last few months as I’ve tried to understand how best to teach composition and the creative and visual designs skills we need to master as we learn this craft.
