“Composition is the strongest way of seeing.” - Edward Weston
Develop your skills as a nature photographer through thoughtful compositions. Learn tools of composition and how to use your camera to make an image that captures a moment, feeling or experience in nature.
Through classroom instruction, in-field photography, and critique sessions, you will learn and apply a number of composition tools including:
- Four corners
- “FMB” (foreground, middle ground and background)
- Leading lines
Composition is a key component of powerful photographs. Understanding the principles of composition will allow you to create images that reflect what you see--and what you want others to see-- in nature.
