If you’re into photography and I ask if you know the Rule of Thirds, chances are, your answer would be a “Yes!” But if I ask you “why” it works (or does not work sometimes), youl’d probably try to think about your answer but to no avail. But you sure would want to find out, correct?
The “how’s” of photography is easy. It’s so easy you can just google it. My challenge for you is to go beyond understanding the how’s of composition and photography. Go beyond the “rules” you’ve learned but have not truly understood. Instead, discover the why’s – because knowing the why answers the how.
Understanding the “why” allows you to effectively follow, and effectively break, the rules of photography. It will even allow you to make your own sets of rules as you go along.
The Missing Piece – it is a six-hour hands-on workshop on photographic vision and effective composition I created. It is designed to hone your photographic intuition through a series of unconventional photography learning styles. In this workshop, my mission is to share with you the why’s behind the rules and provide you with a better understanding of the true value of photographic composition.
Why “The Missing Piece?”
There’s the basic photography workshop, where you learn about the camera and exposure, and then there are advanced workshops, which most often focuses on a genre and specialized skills. But isn’t vision and composition more important than your camera and your “specialized skill”? The Missing Piece is all about that – vision and composition. The Missing Piece is a photography workshop that aims to help improve and allow you to figure out the most effective composition strategy based on your vision.
Why should you take the workshop?
If you’re still reading, it’s obvious you want to be part of it.
