January 2024 Mentoring Meeting

January 31 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Focus Mentoring Meeting

Mark your calendars for 6:30 PM the 31st for a presentation from longtime club member Joe Bonita on Effective Composition. Joe has been in the club for many years and is a well accomplished and travelled photographer.

Since we don’t have Lone Tree CC for that evening, this will be a Zoom only meeting. Club members will get the Zoom details a day prior to the meeting.

Using more than 100 image samples, Joe will be discussing a number of compositional topics, including:

  • Focusing attention on the subject using negative space and subject highlighting.
  • Leading the viewers eyes through the picture via leading lines, direction of the subject in the frame and the use of curves and arcs.
  • Creation of a feeling of serenity or tension via he placement of the image within the frame.
  • Explanation of the compositional rules: The rule of thirds, the golden ratio, the rule of odds the rule of space and the single subject rule.
  • The use of repetition and patterns.
  • Some things to avoid.

An effective composition can make or break an image. Knowing about exposure, your camera controls, and lighting have their place…but without a solid composition you only have a well exposed shot of a random moment in time.

Join Joe and the rest of the club January 31st for an informative and useful presentation and take your 2024 image making to the next level.
