This skill is something photographers have to develop themselves and this meet up will focus on precisely this. Get beyond the rule of thirds, learn a range of new compositional techniques, some drawn from the masters of photography. Discover how Ansel Adams made compelling landscapes by getting low, getting wide, and getting close! Discover the power and use of leading lines, symmetry, repetition and rhythm. No matter what your photographic interests are, these guides can help you to make more creative and arresting images!
