Part I - The Marriage of Color and Composition
In this portion of the class, you will learn how color and composition go hand in hand in creating a stronger image. Colors have meaning and evoke emotion. When they are harmonious, they create a pleasant feeling; when they clash, they can evoke various other feelings. Composition is greatly impacted by colors. You will learn about the different types of color schemes, such as triadic, analogous and complementary. Value, hue, texture, color intensity and contrast will be discussed as well as unity, balance, movement, rhythm, focus, proportion and dynamic lines. This class will be presented in two parts, first an in-depth PowerPoint presentation and then a hands-on activity using fabric to help you visualize how color and texture impact the composition of an image.
Part II - Discovering Who You Are as an Artist according to personality trait theories, people who are considered artistic tend to be attracted to activities that involve creativity, originality, and independence, such as singing, dancing, writing, or just expressing their uniqueness. I believe, as photographers, we all have a creative gift, we just need to learn how to develop that gift. Each one of us are unique individuals and that is a wonderful thing. This presentation is designed to help you listen to your inner self, to open your eyes to the inspirational world that is right in front of your eyes. There is inspiration everywhere, you just need to learn to recognize it. Breakaway from copying other photographers’ work and discover your own style. Let me help you jump start your creativity so you can go forth and create something beautiful.
