Come and join us as we explore composition in photography.

Composition is one of the most critical element in photography. Composition is how a photographer arranges the visual elements within their image, frame. I promise you that if you search for information on composition you will find plenty You will find formal rules, opinion, some of which you can trace back to historical art movements and painters.

Even in the digital world, composition remains the key to creating strong images. Composition is what guides our eye through an image and gives importance to the subject. It creates the story for the viewer and how we as photographers convey that message.

    This was an enjoyable and useful event. The session was well-structured with a set of challenges for participants to work on. Good feedback was provided on each challenge. I learnt a few very useful things (eg considering contrast, shape and texture for each photo) and gained confidence.

    I had the pleasure of attending a 'street photography at night class' recently, and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The tutor's friendly and patient approach made learning a breeze. Claudiu's guidance helped me grasp essential techniques and concepts, enhancing my photography skills significantly. I left the class feeling not only more confident but also inspired to explore and experiment further. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in honing their photography skills.

    A day's photo trip to Valencia (amongst other locations), to explore the contrasts between the 'old' and the 'new' areas of this beautiful Spanish city. I was drawn to this particular composition due to the leading lines and the 'wild' contrasts produced by such a gloriously sunny day. The people on the esplanade helped give a sense of scale to the architecture, although it would have been interesting to have tried a long exposure, using an ND filter. It also screamed out as becoming a pleasing

    I decided to spend a few hours trying to image a pair of kestrels as I had seen them playing in the fields the day before, unfortunately they were nowhere to be seen, but to my suprise I spotted the short eared owl starting to hover and swoop over the grasses so I took this amazing opportunity to photograph this absolutely stunning bird of prey.

I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

I was using a Canon 40D and Canon 100-400mm L series lens at the time.RIAT is wholly dependant upon the right weather for good photography. Cloud too low - display routines are changed. Too much cloud and rain - the background is too grey. The weather can also be too good, leaving bright blue, but boring backgrounds. Thankfully July 18, 2009 provided goo

    Knowing there was a high chance of seeing the aurora borealis, I left work early on Friday, May 10. First, I stopped at my local camera store to buy a new lens I had been dreaming about (14-24mm f2.8). Then I drove to Minnesota to meet up with another photographer. By 1am, we found ourselves by this lake. I often found myself admiring the aurora and not taking pictures. It was unlike anything I had ever experienced.
