Class Experience

- Students will understand how we go about arranging a composition and how we can make changes to composition.
- Students will learn six composition techniques, and practice using them in their photographs.
- Students will be able to analyze the composition of a photograph by using the terms learned.
- Students will learn to speak about their work with detail and pride, and share it with the group.
I hold a BA in Studio Art/Photography and Psychology, and am trained both as a photographer and as a Montessori assistant teacher. As an educator I have experience teaching children pre-K through high school. 
Each week, students will be assigned to create photos utilizing the new elements of composition we have learned about, culminating in a final project where they utilize them all.
