Street Photography Composition: Transform Your Photography Using Science

FIND OUT HOW

🚀 Unlock the secrets of perception and master the brain's visual language!

Take my online course and change your photography forever... (it's true) 

As a self-proclaimed geek, I have always been fascinated by understanding how things work, including photography. Instead of focusing on technicalities (yawn), I delved into the reasons why some photographs work while others not-so-much.

By studying the work of renowned photographers and researching psychology, I was able to improve my own street photography. While street photography may be considered an art, I aim to teach you the science of composition based on how our brains process visual information. Curious? I hope so!

 

Here's what you will learn:

📸

The formula for a great street photograph

📸

How to apply the Gestalt Principles to massively improve your photography

📸

The filter in your brain that can be programmed to fine-tune your observation

📸

Understand the power of your frame and how to use it wisely

📸

How using shapes and geometry play a key role in photographic composition

📸

How to take intriguing photographs with and without people

Watch the short intro video now!  ðŸ‘‰ðŸ¼

Yes, the intro has my face and everything. However, so there are no surprises, you should know that the rest of the course is made of slides and voice-over so you'll get a LOT of photo examples to help you with your assignments.

 

Inside the course before delving into the science, I'll begin by sharing my secret formula for a great street photo. You'll get a straightforward framework to apply to your own work, whether during the shooting process or afterward while selecting your best shots. The first lesson is the most extensive one, as it will provide you with a solid foundation for the remainder of the course.

This course is for anyone who possesses curiosity, a desire to create, and a camera (which can be an iPhone). While it is aimed at street photographers who are starting out, shooters of all skill levels can enjoy experimenting with the principles and concepts I will present, because these are things that are not the "usual" thing you get taught as a street photographer.

As a result, you'll begin to view, consider, and compose the world in new and exciting ways, and your confidence in your own creativity will grow and grow!

I believe science is rad, everything is learnable (especially with a framework), and practice is everything.

All my photos were shot using Fujifilm XT-2 with a 23mm f2 Fujinon lens, or with a Fujifilm X100V, and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

FULL DISCLOSURE: 

This class does not teach you the basics of street photography practice but you can get an introduction to that in this free guide.

I have a preference for sunny day photography, although some flat light photos are included as examples in the class. However, assignments are achievable in all lighting conditions.
