Charlotte Monthly Meeting Guest Speaker Susanna Euston

March 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us as we learn the basic as well as the advanced compositional techniques. Led by Susanna Euston.

Photographic Artistry Composition Techniques

Composition is the crucial factor that determines the success of a photograph. The light may be extraordinary and the colors amazing, but without solid composition techniques to organize them and the scene’s other elements your vision will not result.

Knowing how to draw the viewer’s eye to the image’s subject and keep it engaged and in the frame makes all the difference. Knowing how to create figure-ground relationships and use design elements and placement tools — along with the light, values, textures, and color — will take your images to the “next level.”

This presentation will include a PowerPoint program that illustrates these essential concepts. We’ll begin with composition basics as a refresher, then move beyond the “Rule of Thirds” into advanced concepts that will expand your view and give you tools for “putting together” lines, masses, colors, textures, and values in innovative ways.

As a follow-up to the program, on March 26th at 7:00 pm, Susanna will critique members’ images. Submit two images for which you’d like feedback. More details will be given at the March 12th meeting.”
