Design, Composition, Artistry & Vision
with Joe Glyda
February 20th, 7:15 - 9:30 PM
$30

Design and Composition:
Learn the basics of design elements and composition principles used in the world of Photography. See why images have more impact than others. Feel confident when placing the subject in a certain position and realize why it looks better. Understand the meaning of some of the design elements as well as learn what to look for before clicking the shutter.

A lesson in Creativity?
Many instructors claim to teach Creativity as if it was a photographic technique, but the truth is, Creativity is a process. Creativity is not a single lesson that can be taught. It is a journey that is developed through both sides of the brain. The left side, which understands calculations and formulas, mixed with the right side of the brain, which involves the senses and emotions. The combination of this mixture forms the Creative process.

Understanding about your own personal journey of Creativity is a complicated form of expression that has many facets to explore and Joe will guide you through the process. He really can’t tell you exactly where he’s going with this session, because it would give the element of surprise away and the creative light bulb won’t turn “on” over your head at that given moment!

Come with an open mind and allow Joe to help you take the journey to develop your own unique creative style.
