Circles and lines can be a great way to frame your entire photograph and they can be very simple to stack in a photograph. You’ll discover the uses of circles and lines and how to see them in your frame.
In this session, you’ll learn all about the uses of rectangles and triangles in a composition. You’ll also learn how to combine multiple shapes in a composition to reveal a multi-shape image.
After you are able to notice your shapes in a composition, you can start to get really creative with them. Stacking shapes with repetition, shooting through shapes, and using split-screens take creativity higher. In this session you’ll learn how to use them.
In this final session, we’ll go in the field, to Ozone Falls, and work our way around the waterfall to see different uses of shapes and next level techniques.
