“Even in front of nature one must compose” - Edgar Degas

Learning the Language of Composition might be the most important step you will ever take in mastering landscape photography!
To be articulate in any medium one needs not only to understand the technology being used but, as importantly, one must learn and make use of the grammar and syntax of the chosen language – in this case – the “visual” language.
Learning the "visual language” begins by considering examples of many of the classic photographs by the Masters that you have come to love. You will discover what they knew and what you may not yet realize about how to structure your work to attract the eye and interest of the viewer.
During daily video presentations, field work and review / critique sessions you will discover how to create more emphatic and compelling images using the same principles that attracted you to the work of the Masters.
We look forward to having you join us on our always enlightening, fun and occasionally inspirational workshops.
