Composition in Landscape Photography


What makes a pleasing landscape photo?
What is Visual Communication?
How do we “read” images of landscapes, and what makes one photo “more effective” than another one?
Join Mieke for a focused discussion of the most effective compositional tools for landscape photography, and learn how to incorporate these into your own photographs through a range of hands-on practical activities incorporating the beautiful scenery at Feathertop Winery!
