yet another great group of students finishes up another section of content & composition at tlf...
c&c I is five fun-filled weeks dedicated to figuring out what goes into making a good photograph and where to put it!
the first few classes always focus on the rules of composition; how to move the viewer's eye through the frame, what is distracting to the viewer, what attracts the viewer... it is very viewer-centric to begin with.
the later part of the course is all about the artist-photographer...

every student puts their heart & soul into putting some heart & soul into each image.
for some, it is the natural next step. for others, a journey of self-discovery. for most, it is a battle between the things you want to say, the things you need to say and the things you are not supposed to say.
it is rarely simple, but it is always worth it.
this class was no exception. with only two students, the burden to entertain me was certainly present, but they kept me thinking and laughing and full of pride. below, i share with you my two wonderful students' two favorite images.

introducing, ester and kevin...
