Designing a Photo: 18 Steps to Better Composition

Workshop

Thursday, February 16, 2023 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Composition is: 1. The art of deciding what goes into your photo and what stays out; 2. The art of arranging the components within your composition in a way that best pleases the eye. In other words, "You don't TAKE a photo; you MAKE it." (Ansel Adams)

Through the use of many examples, this presentation will lead you through 18 "rules of thumb" that will help you design better photos, regardless of where you now are in your photography.

Photo review

Workshop

Saturday, February 25, 2023 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Online Zoom Meeting

Here’s your opportunity to get friendly feedback on your photos from your fellow club members. Do you just want to learn more about the basics of taking a good photo? Are you having some difficulty getting the “look” you want with lighting and composition? Want to do better in our competitions and juried exhibits? Whatever your level of experience or ability, you’ll find these casual and supportive meetings helpful—and just plain fun!

You’ll get the most from these meetings by posting your own photos. But of course you’re welcome to just show up and observe the photos posted by others.
If you’d like to show us your photos, upload up to two JPEGs (sized to about 2000 pixels on the longest side) to the current photo review entry on the PhotoContest Pro website (www.photocontestpro.com).

The deadline is always midnight before the meeting. (If you need help with uploading, check out the information available on the CCC website under Competition Info, or contact Gerry Bishop via email.)
