Photography, like painting, sculpting or ceramics, is an art form. Whether you are taking a picture of your family during a birthday party or a breathtaking landscape, there are decisions made that influence your final image. In this class we will take an in-depth look at these elements that make up an image and how you can use them to your advantage.
We will start with composition by looking at what makes anaesthetically pleasing photograph. From the way lines and other shapes can help lead the eye, to the way light and color help to shape the viewers experience. In the second half of the class, we will dive into exposure. We will break down the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO into an easy to understand equation and then look at how each of these affects your imagery.
