Composition Elements Lecture

I have exciting news! Roger Morin will be presenting part II of his lecture series, Elements of Composition, January 16th at 7 pm.




By means of a plethora of examples from his three photography books and from his numerous workshops throughout the world, Roger’s presentation will discuss how to take compelling photos by following basic photography composition including: Filling the frame, watching backgrounds, knowing your focus, rule of thirds, symmetry, scale, using frames, altering viewpoints, creating depth, and others.   Understanding these compositional elements is a fundamental requirement to help you design compelling photographs with balance, harmony, and appeal to viewers.

I was thrilled with Dr. Morin’s presentation at our previous IAAPG meeting on 21 November. He was an excellent speaker, sharing his expertise and thoughts while getting our creative juices flowing!

For those that missed this, the topic was “Learning to See Creatively: Elements of Design“. Roger walked us through a series of how to see lines, shapes, forms, texture, patterns, and color in our photographic compositions. “Be a spaceship” was often referred to while he emphasized changing the angle of your shot…to hover, dip, dive, angle away like a spaceship.

I received an e-mail from him and he commented, “depending on my work schedule would love to do Composition 2“. Like many of you, I am looking forward to his next lecture and I will keep you updated when that is placed on our calendar.

For those that requested a PDF of the lecture or perhaps missed it and would like to see it, I’ve added it to Google Drive so you can download it.
