What are you really trying to say in your images? Join Pete Collins and Steve Gustafson as they explore the role of composition in your photography as a means to have a dialog between the photographer and the audience. Through the use of examples and discussion Pete and Steve delve into the importance of having all of the elements contained within the frame working together in support of the larger message you are trying to convey, why it is critical that your intention for making a photograph informs the creation of that photograph, and how you can influence a variety of factors at the moment of capture and in post-processing to enhance the strength of your message. Stick around for the bonus lessons at the end where Pete dives a little deeper into a couple of topics to help drive those points home.
