Last year I did a live event on photographing Eagles and Wildlife and I made reference to “leveling up” my skills as I shot. I found that concept to be very helpful for me in many aspects of my photography, especially composition.
What do I mean by “leveling up”? I feel there is a gradual skill level upgrade process that happens as you shoot any genre of photography. When you first start out, everything is art and you photograph everything and everything, but sometimes in your haste, you miss the best shots.
I have found that as I slow down and take a more deliberate approach to my compositions while on location, I make better decisions and ultimately come away with better shots.
In this live event, I will discuss many of my portfolio images and how I got to the composition I did, and what makes that composition “next level” compared to the images I shot before it.
At the end of the event, I would like you to have a solid understanding of composition and why some compositions are better than others, and how you can begin to level up yours as well!
