Photography course - Composition for all
Some photographs spontaneously attract the viewer's attention.
Some photographs spontaneously attract the viewer's attention via their structure and composition. The eye circulates through them according to a composition that establishes this invisible link between the visual path and the reading of the image, inviting us to reflect, to criticise or to dream...
The practice of photography involves a certain number of technical principles and aesthetic rules of construction. The composition of an image is the keystone of this "technical-aesthetic" ensemble.
The composition of an image will in turn determine organisational values, volume ratios and layout priorities. These choices of construction and composition play with the elements present: the subject, the context and the light.
The compositional work establishes, transforms and accentuates the relationship to reality by favouring the dynamic axes, lines of force, entrances and circulation, which will appear in the image.
We will show you how to perfect these few essential points. While going back to the fundamental principles, we will see that a simple change of composition can radically transform the quality of your photos. The art of composition will allow you to reveal yourself in your personal practice of photography.
Technical prerequisites for this workshop: To have followed our beginner workshops (1,2,3 & 4) or to have been introduced to the photographic technique by another means.
Reminder: An appointment form will be sent a few days before the date of each workshop, with the exact location of the meeting and the contact details of the teacher. It is quite possible to follow two 3.5 hour workshops in the same day or four workshops in the same weekend as these workshops have been designed for this rhythm.
It is possible to take part in this course with a film camera, but it will not be possible for your instructor to review the images.
Minor participants can participate in our courses (under condition, see article here in our help centre).
