In this live online course, you’ll refine your composition skills and improve your photographic seeing, to tell stronger stories with your pictures. Weekly exercises will help you develop a heightened sensitivity to your surroundings, by photographing in urban environments (indoors and outdoors) using a variety of compositional tools. We’ll cover how to best compose space when people are included in the composition, and during group critique we’ll discuss effective editing and analyze what works in an image – and what doesn’t. For inspiration we’ll take a look at historical and contemporary photographers and study their approaches to image composition and storytelling.
A special highlight of the workshop will be a live online tour through the exhibition Lee Friedlander . Retrospective at C/O Berlin with chief curator Felix Hoffmann (date to be announced).
