Creative Vision: Composition

Steve Kozak M.Photog.Cr., CPP

Artists since the days of Michelangelo have struggled with composition – this concept of arranging and placement elements within a picture is critical to the overall success and look of image.

PPA Instructor Steve Kozak boils it down to several key aspects so that your photos have great composition, each time, every time.

Do you know the four elements of composition you need to consider for each shoot? Do you know the seven tools used to create more dynamic images? Does the terms “rule of third” or “leading lines” mean anything to you? They should and they will!

In his expert, straightforward and easy to understand manner, Steve tells you everything you needed to know – but maybe didn’t want to ask – about composition. Take this class and be the expert!

We value your feedback and want to know how we can improve. Please share your thoughts about the class here.
