The gist of the workshop

Essentially this workshop will give you the opportunity to submit your best photo for feedback. Also, I want to make this workshop as fun and engaging for you as possible.

I think this workshop is also good for all ranges of photographers. To go back to basics and the fundamentals of composition is a strong way to re-inspire and re-spark your passion and motivation for photography. Also, you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself to the group (we will stay connected via email after the workshop), and you will also get personalized photography composition assignments and activities after the class is over.

General structure of workshop

Demonstration on my last online workshop, using iPad and Zoom to demonstrate real-time composition.

The workshop is (Saturday, May 23rd, 2020, 12-2pm Eastern Time), and this is the general structure of the workshop:

  1. Start off with personal introductions and WHY composition is important to you.
  2. Lecture on composition from Eric Kim, and real-life demos on composition.
  3. Feedback, critique and visual analysis of your submitted photos.
  4. At the end of the workshop, you are given a specific photography composition activity and assignment you must complete by end of day, then ‘reply all’ in the student email chain and submit your photo.
  5. Stay inspired and motivated with the group of students, and look forward to the next workshop (the day after, on Sunday May 24th I am doing an ADVANCED dynamic composition photography workshop, which will build off this workshop).

Is this workshop right for me?

How do you know if this workshop is good for you? My suggestion:

If you are passionate about photography and composition, this workshop is good for you.

It doesn’t matter how much or little experience you got in photography; as long as you have a passion for photography, this workshop is right for you.

[There are only 19 spots available for this workshop.]

See you soon!
