In photography, composition isn’t everything…but it’s close. Effective composition can make a photo far more powerful by drawing the viewer’s eye into the scene and guiding it in a way that conveys your intent as a photographer.

In this course, photographer and educator Taz Tally details four pillars of effective, impactful composition: simplicity, asymmetry, eye lines, and point of view. Through example images and helpful graphics, the course discusses not only the things you can do to enhance composition when you’re shooting, but also improvements you can make using imaging software such as Lightroom.

Throughout the course, Taz issues challenges to help you practice what you’ve learned. The course concludes with a look at how to critique—and thereby improve— your work.

Topics include:

  • Composing for simplicity
  • Employing asymmetry or an interesting point of view
  • Including eye lines
  • Composing in camera
  • Cropping for improved compositions
  • Enhancing images in Lightroom
  • Critiquing your own work
