At our discussion salons, we hear so much about an image’s composition. In photography, composition involves the selection and arrangement of visual elements within a defined space. Composing a pleasing image can be challenging, even intimidating, because there is no set formula to follow.
If you are looking to improve your own photography or to develop a keener eye for evaluating others’ work, Ian Plant has a helpful tutorial in this video:
Ian explains why things like leading lines, shadows, perspective, framing (and more) are visually pleasing, and he shows how to use them to produce well-composed images. Experts and novices alike will find his explanations helpful and his photography inspiring.
Some of you may remember Ian Plant. He spoke at the Camera Council’s 2016 spring break and he gave a presentation to our club in 2015. You can find him at www.ianplant.com.
