Learning Goal

- Students will be able to use composition to take photos from a different perspective

When talking about photography, composition is how we arrange items in the camera's frame. It can have a big impact on how original or creative our final image is. We will cover a number of composition techniques this semester, starting with different angles. You can have really expensive equipment and end up with bad photos. Composition is usually the difference.

Try to look at a scene from different angles or a different perspective. Move-in close, move back, look up, look down, shoot from above, shoot from below, or shoot from the side. Each photo should tell a story, and finding different angles will tell a new story. Check out the links below for examples and more info.
