PICTURE DESIGN 

THE ART OF COMPOSITION 

A Live Seminar by Richard Martin Photography 

SEPT 23, 2017 at 9AM-5PM EST 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

DESIGN VOCABULARY

A better understanding of picture structure and how the various graphic elements contribute to the vocabulary of design.

COMPOSITION

Learn how to abstract the visual elements of design and appreciate the expressive roles they play so you may apply them to your own compositions.

HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR 'EYE'

Numerous recommendations on how to develop an eye for expressive design and the stimulus to open up your imagination.


This full-day seminar is for photographers who want to better understand the elements of composition. We will explore the fundamentals of why and how photographs and all two-dimensional visual images work. 

The seminar also highlights the building blocks of design with exercises to develop your eye and improve your ability to combine various graphic elements into your photographs.


Using a hands-on approach to picture analysis we will make rough sketches highlighting the graphic elements of design.
