Join San Luis Obispo, CA based professional landscape and nature photographer Nic Stover for a PhotoBites Workshop 1 hour LIVE Zoom session to talk about the Essential Elements of Composition & Image Design. PhotoBites are short duration and affordably priced webinar sessions designed to take a deep dive into a particular subject.

In this session we will see how the most impactful and compelling images are the those that have the proper balance of Technique, Vision, and Processing. All of these skills need to be developed and continually refined through our own artistic and creative process. These skills you will learn will help you to evaluate what images you might want to select for your portfolio, see some simple ways to correct minor distractions in post and give you greater confidence to express yourself in new ways.

We will explore some of the following essential concepts of composition and image design:

1. Learn to recognize and overcome some of the challenges we experience in our images.

2. Discover more of what makes a compelling image.

3. Explore how we define composition.

4. Review some examples from Nic’s own work where his technique, vision, or processing was not aligned and thus the viewer was left confused.

5. Look at how the eye and brain moves through images and how it will leave if confused or unstimulated.

6. Discuss the 19 “rules” for landscape photography with image examples and ways to recognize them in the field.

7. Examine the different mood lines that we experience in nature and how we can use those and the inherent shapes that are formed to communicate with or direct the viewer through images in a more concise and clear way.
