Good composition is like a suspension bridge; each line adds strength and takes none away…
Making lines run into each other is not composition.
There must be motive for the connection.
Get the art of controlling the observer – that is composition.
― Robert Henri
Our study of light was an incredible growing experience for all of us. Technically and creatively, we watched as the caliber of our group’s imagery and artistry reached new and inspiring heights. As the final weeks passed by, we knew that one year was not enough. There is always more to learn and we simply had to take on something new. And so, the broad theme of our second year P52 was Composition. We will studied geometry and framing, colors and lines, scale and narrative, and continued to strengthen and grow our photography.
Each week we posted a description of our shooting assignment along with a mosaic gallery of all our images. The mosaic is generated randomly and will look different each time you return or refresh. You may also continue on to any individual photographer’s website by clicking on her image in the mosaic.
