Creative Composition Presented By: Sarah Ehlen

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

It’s such a shame that photography forces us to take a three dimensional world and convey it in just two dimensions. Or is it? Join instructor Sarah Ehlen as she discusses the idea of dimension when it comes to composing an image. By looking at specific examples, Sarah will show several ways to create depth, feeling, and a sense of story in an image. She’ll talk about how all these elements come together to make an impression on the viewer and create photos with impact.
