Breaking the Rules

Following or Breaking the Rules?

Unlike other rules, Photography Composition Rules are flexible, which means you can break the rules at any given time.

It is most useful to learn the rules first and then break them if needed.

Here is a list of most popular Composition Rules:

1- Rule Of Thirds: Off-Centre subject is more dynamic.

2- Speaking of Rule Of Thirds, Keep the horizon STRAIGHT and Off-Centre.

3- Adding “Guide Line” to the image enhances the depth.

4- Create a “Balance” in the picture by selecting the right elements.

5- Camera Orientation (Landscape or Portrait Mode) is a good start for applying the Balance.

And the list goes on and on, stay tuned for more tips.

We offer many fun and hands-on photography classes. All of our photography programs consist of practical and up to date skills. Therefore, you learn the latest techniques in a friendly environment; and since the class size is small, there is plenty of time for exercising.

Digital Camera Crash Course is one of our most popular photography courses. This two-week program is in four sessions, and each session consists of theories and hands-on practices.

Our next Digital Camera Crash Course starts on September 26th, 2020. There are only a few spots left.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
