Would like like to learn how to take what is already available within you and train yourself to see and take great images?

Learn The Laws And Crack The Code

It does not have to be a mystery as to why some people are better photographers than others.  The good photographers have learned the laws of composition which dictate what is considered a poor or great image.

This course aims to identify what these laws are in an ordered universe, such as laws of light and the impact they have when creating our images.

The course also aims to inspire you to appreciate the inbuilt beauty detector within yourself that intuitively knows what makes up good composition and knows what looks nice.  By moving this from a subconscious awareness to a conscious awareness you can train yourself to recognise and create great images.  

You will learn the stages of how a viewer consumes an image:

  • The Eyes

  • The Mind

  • The Heart

Learn To See The Light And To Embrace It

Seeing the light is the single most important skill a photographer can learn, it is the very foundation of photography.  

All good photographers have learned to be observers of light, they have learned to be light hunters.  If the light isn’t right a good photographer won’t even raise their camera.

In this course we will explore the properties and uses of both Hard Light and Soft Light.  We will, through diagrams and examples of images, examine how the light is falling on the subject and reflecting back into the camera.  

Light colour temperature will also be explained with a helpful diagram.

  • Move Your Subject

  • Simple Background

  • Providing Context

  • Creating Disparity

  • Cropping Backgrounds
