Hurry! Today is the last day to save 30% off Incredibly Important Composition Skills!!!

Composition is a crucial factor in making your images sing. Get it wrong and you are likely to remain just a good photographer. The goal, for most, I imagine is to be great at what you do. Even after 18 years in this business, I came away learning so much about the use and sometimes abuse of composition. Indeed, what Lauren and Rob have done is break it all down elegantly and free of the jargon found in stuffy photography books. I recommend it to those starting out in photography and to those who like me have been at it for a very long time.” – Seshu, Tiffinbox.org

Hi there! I’m Lauren – a passionate photographer and head ninja here at Photography Concentrate. I teach photography to more than 100,000 people every month. And I’ve spent the past 5 years helping photographers learn in only a few hours what normally takes people years.

Do you want to take better photos? Who doesn’t, right? So the question I get all the time is: “What’s the number one thing I can do to make my photos stand out? I see great scenes, but I can’t always turn them into interesting photos!”

Can you guess what I say?

(Hint: I don’t tell them to upgrade their gear.)

I tell them that the answer to better photos is composition.

See, building composition skills is the fastest and most lasting way to create amazing images. But learning about composition can be frustrating. The information out there is vague and confusing. And it never leaves you feeling like you really know how to create great photos.

Like the author, you’re a communicator, only you deal with images instead of words. You need to organize your images purposefully if you don’t want them to end up ignored. But…how?

Composition Tips

Step 1: Discover the “Elements” of Composition And See the World in a New Way!

Think about your favourite photo. You probably first visualize the subject, because they’re the important part, right? But now think about all the other bits and pieces of visual information that make up that photo. Things like the lighting, the shapes, the lines, and colors.

These are compositional elements.

And here’s the crazy thing: they often have more impact on your image than the subject itself! These elements influence where your viewer looks and the feeling they take away. Whether or not you take advantage of it is up to you.

So the first step to better communication with your viewer is to understand what all of the visual elements are, and what they do for composition.

When you get Incredibly Important Composition Skills you’ll first learn about the fundamental elements – those that will show up in almost every photo, and can make or break your image.

Fundamental ElementsSpot the elements

Then we’ll cover the secondary elements. These ones may not be in every scene you shoot, but if you keep an eye out for them, you can start creating photos that will really stand out.

When you’ve finished learning this stuff, you’ll start seeing the world in a whole new way, and suddenly become aware of how everything in your photo can influence the message.

Step 2: Then, Learn 7 Essential Techniques for Composing Incredible Images

Knowing about the elements is the first step. But that’s not enough. You also need to know how to arrange them in your photo. In the tutorial you’ll learn 7 essential compositional techniques – practical ways of organizing the elements in your frame to create stunning images.

You know how certain photos just feel right? That comes from something called “balance”, and is a technique that every photographer needs to have in their tool belt. We’re going to discuss three different ways to bring balance to your photos. We’re also going to show you how to break with convention, and create images that have tension and drama!

Composition Tips, Photography Techniques

I’ll also show you how to use layers to draw your viewer into the photo, and make them feel like they were right there in the scene with you. This is a super powerful way to engage your audience, and you’ll be itching to get out and start trying it!

You’ll even discover how to use different elements in the scene to get your viewers to look where you want them to, in the right order. You’ll be in total control!

Step 3: Next, Get Our Simple 8-Step Process and Remember How to Compose Winning Images, Every Time

What good is theory if you don’t know how to actually use it while you’re out taking photos? Not good! And that’s why I’ll hook you up with an easy 8-step process that will help you make better compositions every time you take a photo.

See, before you press the shutter, you make a series of decisions. Stuff like which aperture to use, where to stand, and when to press the shutter. You might not have thought about them as decisions that impact your composition, but as you’ll learn in this tutorial, each one has a big role to play.

Composition - Chairs

For example, where you stand seems like a pretty simple decision. But where you place your feet – what point of view you take – can completely change the entire scene. Even a small step to either side can make the difference between an image that works, and one that falls flat.

Take a look at this example. A simple change in my point of view created two totally different compositions. The lines of the towel go from vertical to diagonal, the triangle of the missing piece is more prominent in the first. There are also big differences in the amount of empty space, the predominant colour, and the visible textures.
