This week we are starting our next Unit of work 'Compose Yourself'. This Unit is all about composition in photography
Some say there are certain rules in the composition of a photograph. Whilst not every photo has to follow a rule, it's good to know what the general guidelines of composition are to make your photographs more aesthetically pleasing.
Learn about different composition rules
Watch the below Youtube video on the work of Steve McCurry about 9 photo composition tips.
Choose three of the composition tips in the video and, in a Word document:
- Name each composition tip and explain what it means
- Find three examples to put into your Word document from unsplash.com that uses the composition tip
Take a photo using a composition rule
Using whatever camera you have available, go for a walk around your neighbourhood and take a photo using one of the compositional rules you have learned about.
Place this photo into your Word document and:
- Name the composition rule you used when taking the photo
- Explain how your photo uses the compositional rule
Upload to the Compass Learning Task
On the class page there will be a Learning Task called 'Intro to Composition'. Use the digital submission feature to upload your Word document onto Compass.
Here's some inspiration for some ideas for your photo!
