Learn how to make your pictures flow
Composition can make or break a picture.
No matter what your genre of photography, poor composition ruins many a good shot.
Composition is the most basic building block of anyone's photography, it's been like that since the first beginnings of photography and will be like that forever. The problem is that it's often forgotten amoungst the desire to own the best gear, But having the best gear doesn't mean you can take pictures that have the wow factor, we can help you do that!
A 4 module series of 60-90 minute webinars based on Zoom (plus a bonus pre-recorded session), that look at the classic and innovative compositions that @wildmanrouse uses to achieve his world class imagery. This is not an overtly technical series so will suit any level of photographer, but instead one that looks to open your eyes to different possibilities on an aesthetic level. Perfect for the creative photographer wanting to take their photography to the next level, and want to learn from a multi award winning professional who knows how to teach...and to be himself.
Included in the price is your streaming of the live session plus a recorded version of the module that you can stream infinitum. That's a posh word for whenever you want!

Our Composition Masterclass has 5 main teaching modules. Every module is packed with examples of exactly what Andy does, there are no fillers, he holds nothing back and explains every concept in detail in his "extrovert" style!
Module 1 Basic Principles - In our Basic Principles webinar we set the scene for the whole series, looking at why composition is so important and laying down some essential building blocks for the modules to come.
Modules 2 & 3 - A Composition Toolkit - Straight into the nitty gritty of composition we break down the subject into manageable chunks and examine key elements of composition that apply to natural history photography. Explained slowly and methodically, illustrated with incredible imagery of the natural world...with a few non nature surprises too!
Module 4 - Taking Killer Portraits - Given its own module, taking compelling portraits is a complex skill which we explore in great detail, showing how to build fantastic portraits, whether close in or slightly wider. We talk about expressions, capturing personality and how to avoid portrait blunders.
Bonus Module - Composition Workflow - Composition is a skill that can be mastered in camera, or which can be adjusted on your workstation. Therefore @wildmanrouse has put together a simple workflow for how to treat your images when it comes to processing them, including formats, sizing, composition aids, cropping methods, re-interpolation and sharpening. Not post processing in terms of colour correction but equally vital (some of us would say more vital) when trying to get the most out of your images. Suitable for all software used, this is a guidance session rather than in-depth technical training but will contain some technical recommendations from experience. The link will be given to all participants after Module 3 so that any questions can be answered in the discussion section at the start of Module 4.
