Digital Photography Workshop

Composition in Outdoor Photography

Digital Photography workshop on October 4,

As we all know photography consists of Techniques and Art. Exposure, White Balance, Metering Mode, Etc. are the Technical part of photography. Although they are very important, don’t forget the Artistic part which is Composition.

What is Composition in Photography?

In Photography, Composition is the artistic part of photography. Here is a short description about Composition” “In the visual arts – in particular painting, graphic design, photography and sculpture – composition is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients in a work of art or a photograph, as distinct from the subject of a work. It can also be thought of as the organization of the elements of art according to the principles of art. The term composition means ‘putting together,’ and can apply to any work of art, from music to writing to photography, that is arranged or put together using conscious thought. In the visual arts, composition is often used interchangeably with various terms such as design, form, visual ordering, or formal structure, depending on the context. In graphic design and desktop publishing, composition is commonly referred to as page layout.” Wikipedia

Why Composition is important?

In photography, altering the position of the camera can change the image so that the subject has fewer or more distractions with which to compete. This may be achieved by getting closer, moving laterally, tilting, panning, or moving the camera vertically.
