I always like to show what my online classes with the PPSOP are doing In my part I and part II courses, as well as in my “Stretching Your Frame of Mind” workshops. teach fellow photographers how to incorporate the elements of visual design and composition into their photography. Terms like: Negative space, Vanishing Point, Perspective, Tension, Line, Texture, Pattern, Shape, Form, and Color are all a part of their new ‘Artist Palette’. As a result, they walk away armed with the knowledge of what it takes to create strong, well designed and memorable photos; and the ability to “make pictures”.
In my part II class, a continuation of what they learned in part I, we work on the most important of all the elements of visual design, Line. We also work on creating shadows, silhouettes, and the use of light to add drama and tension.
The following slideshow, as well as the photo featured at the top of this blog are examples of how they used not only what they remembered from part I, but what they walked away with at the end of the four week part II class as well.
