Foundations of Photography 107: Composition

Andrew Taylor

Andrew Taylor explored how Composition can make an interesting subject bland or make an ordinary subject appear beautiful. The discussion explored the concepts of composition, from basics such as the rule of thirds to more advanced topics such as the way the eye travels through a photo. The class also covered how the camera differs from the eye and introduces composition fundamentals, such as balance and point of view. The discussion also examined the importance of geometry, light, and color in composition. There was a live photo shoot after the lecture featuring the 1966 Ferrari 365P Tre Posti Berlinetta Speciale.
