About the workshop
The "Master Photography Composition" workshop has been specially developed to let the participants understand the artistic components in an image.

We often know we like a photo but don’t really understand why.
This half day workshop will fit beginners and experienced photographers as one, for beginners it will be the right step , to understand the composition elements that make a successful photo.

As for experienced photographers, It often happens that a photographer knows his camera, knows the techniques how to photograph, but is still unsatisfied with his images. Usually what is lacking is the understanding of the artistic components in a photo, this workshop will help you improve regardless of your level.

Even for those who are interested in photography, but has been afraid to do the first step because of fear of the technical part. Well good news, the course focuses on the artistic aspect of photography rather than the technical.

What Will I Learn?

The goal of this workshop is to teach you how to take better photos regardless the camera you are using, you can use your phone, small pocket camera or any other medium, what we will learn here applies to all of them.  

You will walk away with a complete package of knowledge of all of the compositional  needs in a photograph.

An overview and explanation of what a good workflow in photography looks like. A deeper philosophy and understanding of photography, understanding how ,color and composition work together.



We will go through the composition rules and how to build a frame to create stronger images.
The point of a composition is to pull the eye of the viewer across the photo, taking in individual elements to finally focus on the main feature or focus of the image – this could be anything from subject matter to emotional effects. 



Color is one of the powerful tools in photography .The most important thing about understanding color is knowing how to match different colors.
We will learn what to look at a scene with a photographer eye .
Learn and understanding color theory — the way painters, designers, and artists of all trades do.

B&W photography


"When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls" is a famous quote by Ted Grant .
So we will learn how to look at a scene beyond the colors and shoot with B&W mindset.
Before trying to understand complex camera settings ,it is necessarily to understand more about artistic components of photography.

Natural light 


Natural light is one of the basIcs of photography . If you manage to understand how to work with natural light, this knowledge can be later applied to any genre or style of photography. 
Photography lighting can be the difference between a breathtaking photo and a terrible one.
