Composition in Landscape Photography Begins February 10

February 10 @ 9:00 am - March 10 @ 12:00 pm

Stairs create a lead line to the bench atop “waterfall hill”.

Take 5 February Saturday mornings to learn about the 5 basic elements of photo composition. Depth-of-Field, Patterns, Symmetry, Texture and Lines will be the topics of the week. We’ll be out exploring areas of the CBG that are perfect examples of each concept. Could be a good time to tryout that new winter coat or new camera.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
