Now get the knowledge

YOUR PHOTOS ARE OK, BUT THEY’RE NOT WOW!

YET!

What if you could look at a scene and know exactly how to frame it and what to include or exclude?

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START

You know that there are rules of composition, but you don’t know what they are or how to use them.

YOU GET STUCK TRYING TO GET A GOOD SHOT

You find yourself taking several shots of the same thing from different angles, hoping that one is going to look good.

YOU DON’T HAVE A “PHOTOGRAPHER’S EYE”

Other photographers seem to know how to frame a photo to make it look good, but you don’t have “the eye” for it.

YOUR TIME IS LIMITED

You’re busy and it’s difficult to carve out chunks of time to dedicate to learning new skills.

DID YOU JUST NOD YOUR HEAD?

GREAT!

YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!

IMAGINE HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO…

Confidently assess a scene

Know what to look for in a location and how to use it, where to place your subject within the scene, what to include and what to exclude for a strong image.

Know the look you want

You’ll spend less time scratching your head and taking a gajillion shots from every angle to make sure you get the right one somewhere in the mix.

Plan for the end result

Before you even lift your camera, you’ll know what you want to capture and how to set it up. You’ll know the best angles and what colors will work for the mood and look of the photo you have in mind.

Understand fundamentals of posing

Pose your subject for great composition, regardless of the location. Know how to use body position and limbs to enhance the composition of a portrait.

THE THING ABOUT COMPOSITION…

Your photo can be sharp, your subject interesting and your lighting gorgeous… but if your composition is weak, it won’t grab and hold attention. It won’t be that wow shot you want.

YOU’VE GOT THE TOOLS. ALL YOU NEED IS THE HOW!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR, JANE ALLAN

Jane started in photography as a freelance assistant to photographers specialising in different areas – fashion, cars, fine art and commercial photography. She saw firsthand the importance of composition to each photographer she assisted. As important as lighting.

When she branched out on her own, composition was naturally at the forefront of her mind with every shoot. She’d already seen the same composition techniques applied by professionals across different genres for amazing images.

A few decades later, when she started teaching photography, composition came first.
