Composition I: From Good to Great

A good composition is the essence of impactful images. How do we define a “good composition?” In this course, your instructor will answer this question with tangible rules, so your technique can be more scientific than mystical. Similar to how learners of a new language use grammar to structure their sentences, aspiring photographers can use compositional elements to design their images. Composition I: From Good to Great sets you on a course to obtain great compositions intuitively.
