I am very excited to work with you next week in our upcoming photography workshop. We will be using iPads to take digital photographs. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite photographs. Here is a link to my own portfolio, where you can look at photographs I have taken.
Let's discuss some aspects of photography that create a great photograph. The most important thing is that you have to be inspired by your subject. You need to be drawn to it for some reason. That reason is muse (inspiration). When we take photographs during our workshop around the school and school grounds, follow the muse. Follow your inspiration. If you see something interesting, investigate! Look closely at your subject matter. Zoom in or zoom out. Frame your subject. Most importantly, take a lot of photos. Practice makes perfect.
So to review:
1. Follow your inspiration!
2. Zoom in or zoom out to frame your subject just right
Onto the rule of thirds...
The rule of thirds is important in photography. Here are some examples.
Compose: write or create (a work of art, especially music or poetry).
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. - Ansel Adams
