Composition: Bring Your Photographs to Life! (Lissa Chandler)
Limited Capacity seats available

Do you ever shoot a gallery and, once it's done, look over the images and feel like they look a little bland? Do you ever stand at a session and, in between frames, think to yourself, "I want to show something more"? Do you ever feel like your photographs have so much more to say than they are actually saying? You've come to the right place!

In this class, we will talk about how composition can breathe life into photographs. More specifically, we will address how making use of diverse compositions in one gallery can bring your work to life. Don't get stuck shooting safe compositions all the time! Come to class and learn how composition can add magic to your work and, by extension, your whole perspective on photography. Composition is such a crucial aspect to photography and, by discussing composition techniques while photographing a couple, attendees will learn why environmental portraits, incredibly close portraits, and portraits framed with environmental elements (leaves, flowers, light, etc.) all contribute to galleries that explode with emotion.

Attendees should bring their camera and their favorite lens to class. While this class is primarily a shooting demonstration, attendees will have the chance to photograph the bride and groom. Lissa will use a Canon 35L for the duration of the class.

This outdoor boutique program will take place on the grounds of the plantation.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn how to use wide compositions to show environments.
2. See how to use tight compositions to show emotion.
3. Learn how to use framing elements to showcase environment and emotion.
