Picture This – Photography Composition
Come discover the secrets of composition in photography with professional photographer Jacques Gaines
With the help of professional photographer Jacques Gaines, the Morrin Centre offers a series of five photography workshops. Each workshop will present a different aspect of photography, from framing to photo-editing.
In this workshop, Gaines will discuss the secrets behind photography composition.
Participants may either audit the workshop (attend just to watch) or bring the following items to actively participate in the exercises:
- A camera. Whether a $100 camera or a $5000 camera, we do not care. Anything goes! It can even be your phone, though it should then be a fairly recent phone.
- The picture you are most proud of. It can be a digital copy or a print. (You do not have to show it to the class).
In addition to that, please:
- Dress for the weather outside. After the workshop, for those willing, the teacher will sometimes do a small photo walk if we have the time.
- Make sure you have eaten before coming. It’s not fun having a student in a bad mood!
