Tutorial: Composition

Club member Jo Knight gave a Zoom tutorial on how to compose successful images at our meeting on 22nd September. Covering 8 basic rules of composition Jo demonstrated the importance of strong focal points, choosing where to place our main and secondary subjects, and how to achieve balance within our photos.

Alongside guidance on the rule of thirds and the importance of “KISS”, Jo also looked at when it’s OK to break the rules. There was a lot to take in, so a handout from the evening is available in the Members’ Section of our website. Our thanks go to Jo for her hard work in creating a very informative night.

Our next meeting is the first Members’ Evening competition of the season, which has an open subject. Competition nights are always a favourite, as they give us a chance to view each others images and to receive constructive critique on how to improve our photos. Guests and new members are always welcome, either via zoom or in person at Castle Street – see our membership page for details. See you next week!
