Event description
Learning to see and applying artistic principles will take your photography to the next level!

About this Event

What does it take to create photographs that have impact and look more than a snapshot?

Yes, the technical stuff has a huge part of producing outstanding photography, but learning to see and applying artistic principles will take your photography to new levels. There’s specific artistic rules and techniques that anyone can learn and implement and that’s what Bruce teaches in this class.

“Some people think that they can never become artistic, but I disagree. Spend 3 hours with me and I’ll teach you to see things differently and use what you see to change the quality of your photography!” Bruce Hudson

Here’s what Bruce will cover:

What types of Composition are more effective?

Rather than just pointing and shooting a scene, let’s put some thought into it. Why do some images draw us into the photograph while others fall flat? It has to do with the composition of the image. Bruce explains different types of composition and then has you execute them in his assignments. You will learn the rule of 3rds, symmetrical and vanishing point

“The key with any type of composition is to turn a 2 dimensional scene into the illusion of 3 dimensions. I help my students understand with an application approach vs. theory”

Leading Lines

One thing that helps bring a composition to life is the use of leading lines. Bruce show various examples of diagonal, horizontal, vertical & converging lines as well as C curves and S curves. He also points out how to maximize those lines in your composition to create impact.

“Showing examples is great, but I want my students to be able see what I see and then photograph examples to reinforce what they’ve learned.”

Use of Color

Color is one of the most powerful design elements in photography. The use of color can evoke strong emotions in a image both consciously or subconsciously. Bruce explores with his students the use of color harmony, contrasting colors, monochromatic, and levels of saturation. How do those color elements affect the viewers mood? You’ll be surprised how powerful the use of colors in every image we see!

Texture

Texture Is also a design element that adds to the artistic impact of a photograph. There’s texture everywhere we look and it can come in various forms. How does hard texture verses soft texture impact a photograph? How can you enhance or minimize the use of texture? Can texture contribute to the overall composition of a photograph? Once again Bruce will answer all of these questions and give assignments to reinforce what you discover!

Story Telling

Every photograph should convey a story. Sometimes the story is obvious, sometimes it’s hidden. How can you as a photographic artist inject more story telling qualities into your images? Bruce is a master at telling stories with his clients photography….because he does it every day. In this 3 hour class he will share how he tells stories and why they’re so important in the artist merit of photography.

Why you should take this class?

Bruce has admittedly mentioned on a number of cases that this is one of his favorite classes to teach.

“I love watching my students come alive when they are finally able to see past just the technical aspects of the camera. That’s when the fun begins and the creative juices flourish! I love it!” Bruce Hudson
