Elements of Design

The next section of the course is to consider the design elements of a photograph as a whole. Objective:

“to be able to identify the graphic elements in any photograph, to assess how important a role they play, and to be able to use them for structure and movement in a composition”

The section is divided into a number of projects and exercises, including; Points, Lines, Using lines in composition, Shapes, Rhythm & Pattern and concludes with an assignment that practices elements from the course. The idea is to not just identify the graphical elements in a picture, but to consider how these elements act on our eyes in interpreting the image, then using this analysis to help improve technique and composition.
