This 14-hour class (over three 2-hr class sessions and two 4-hr field sessions) explores the practical application of Composition I fundamentals. We alternate between classroom and field, with the first session an overview of composition and design elements in the classroom. The next session is in the field making photographs. We return to the classroom in the third session to review the photographs made, analyze the results and arrive at solutions. The last two sessions are another field trip followed by another classroom review. Composition I or Photo I are not prerequisites to enroll in this class, but to get the most out of this class you should have a basic understanding of camera operation (aperture, shutter speed, ISO), and principles of exposure and composition.

In-person and one-on-one instruction may incur a travel charge outside my local area. Please Contact Me me to discuss options and additional fees if you are outside the Boise/Meridian/Caldwell area.
