The Thought Process Behind Composition Simplified

If there is one reason why millions of photographers are struggling to make their photographs stand out, it is because of the poor composition. Invariably, the composition is the toughest skill to master in photography. It’s a myriad task indeed.

If I have failed miserably at something in photography, it has to be composition. Not just for first few months, but for several years. I had spent sleepless nights worrying about why my photographs don’t stand out. I wasn’t able to create striking photographs. Something was always missing. Something I couldn’t comprehend no matter what.

I scoured almost everything written about the subject on the internet. I read several books written particularly on composition techniques. I religiously practiced several composition techniques. It wasn’t sufficient.

Then I turned to the masters of photography. I spent countless hours decrypting their mystified compositions. Because no book or blog post was enough to teach me what’s going behind a composition.

All the years of hard work have paid off in recent years. Today I can make pleasing compositions that are applauded by several photographers. I can choose the right composition technique for a given situations.

The reason for writing about my story is that I see more and more number of photographers facing this issue. They are unable to create better photographs. Unfortunately, several photographers don’t even know what’s wrong.

It’s not easy for everyone to spend countless hours in understanding photography composition techniques. Even if they do, it might not be apparent how it works. And more often than not, these composition techniques will take you only so far. They just serve as a guideline to look for good compositions. After that, it’s about how you train your eye to see better compositions. Also, how you make the composition work for you!

I have struggled a lot for years. Does that mean you have to struggle? I don’t think so. I thought I should make it as easy as possible for the other photographers to understand about creating striking compositions.

That’s how the Composition Simplified e-Course was born.

The Composition Simplified e-Course

Traditional ebooks/books teach composition techniques by giving one or two examples of each technique.

Instead of just showing you one striking composition, this e-Course will take you through the process behind them. Instead of just telling you what each composition technique does, it will show you. It will show you why it’s not a good idea to blindly follow a photography composition technique.

You will be shell-shocked to see that there is no magic formula to creating stunning photographs. It’s always a process of finding the stunning compositions in the field. It’s an iterative process.

The Composition Simplified e-Course is about the process of finding the striking compositions in the field.

This e-Course is divided into two categories:

  1. The eBook.
  2. The interactive e-Learning course.

The eBook

Instead of just one composition, you’ll get to see multiple compositions. And the best part is you‘ll know my thought process behind these compositions. And also realize how each composition gives a different feeling to the viewer.

Here’s a fantastic example of 3 different compositions that I made in Biltmore estate, a large private estate and tourist attraction in Asheville, North Carolina. Each composition conveys a different message.

Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The wider composition and inclusion of tourists gives a feeling of vast space and the scale. The leading lines create the depth, and the magnificent cloudscape adds to the dynamism of the scene. The complementary colors in the foreground, midground, and the background make it a compelling image.

Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. By going up close to the foreground lawn, I have created a feeling of “being there.” The strong leading lines create the immense depth, and the magnificent cloudscape adds to the dynamism of the scene. The complementary colors in the foreground, midground, and the background make it a compelling image.

Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The vertical composition gives emphasis to the amazing clouds on the Biltmore estate. By keeping the building much smaller in the image, I have created a sense of scale and vastness. The lines create the depth. The complementary colors in the foreground, midground, and the background make it a compelling image.

That’s not all! There’s more to it. Apart from giving you different compositions, I will be giving you behind the scenes photographs to show how I made some of these photos.

The Interactive e-Learning Course

Instead of learning the concepts in a linear fashion, this e-learning course allows you to interact with a photograph like never before. It allows you to learn the key points behind making a successful composition at your fingertips.

Here’s a concept that I have developed. Expect a polished and a better design in the final product.

It’s sure-fire way to learn in the most efficient manner.

  • You’ll see why composition is the key to making successful photographs.
  • You’ll understand how many visual elements come together to make an image compelling.
  • It’ll allow you to understand the thought process behind a photograph in a visual representation.
The e-Learning Course allows you to learn the key points behind making a successful composition like never before.

The vital difference in this method of learning is that there’ll be several photographs using a single composition technique! This way you’ll get to learn the techniques in various situations. I believe it will change the way you’ll learn things.

Your Opinion Matters

Please express your opinion on this project by taking this small survey. It takes less than a minute to complete but saves me a ton of work.

If you don’t take action now, you may never see this project go live. You might be missing an excellent opportunity to make your opinion count. Think about it.

The Best Part About This Course

The course is not restricted to one genre of photography.

It will cover a variety of subjects like waterfalls, mountain ranges, architectural buildings, forest areas, wildlife, flowers, etc. No matter whether you are starting off in photography or experienced in one genre, you will find something interesting that might change the way you think.

The e-Course will try to address the following issues:

  1. How I choose a subject to photograph?
  2. What’s the message I want to convey?
  3. What’s the first composition that I’ll try for a given scene?
  4. What is the thought process behind including or excluding few elements in the scene?
  5. How I refine the composition to get my message clear?
  6. How I made few tweaks to making my message loud?

These are the vital considerations you learn to make successful photographs that wow the viewers. It was never this easy.

The ultimate aim of a composition is to make your message LOUD & CLEAR.

Why Crowdfunding?

I believe that it’s the most practical way of learning the toughest aspect of photography. If it’s going to be useful, it has to reach a wider audience. More photographers should get the best use of this course.

I need to know what you think. If you think it’ll help you improve your photographs, then you’ll support me by booking this product up front. If you fund this project, then others might fund as well. This might help me reach a wider audience. The more photographers come to know about this project, the better it is.

Your opinion does matter.

I will have to create a brand new set of images and the accompanying content for this course. I would need behind the scenes shots to show you the process of making a better composition. Also, I need to cover few important considerations behind making a composition. It’s almost like you are virtually accompanying me while I am in the field.

This requires traveling to at least few places covering waterfalls, mountain ranges, architectural buildings, forest areas, wildlife, etc. and also it requires me to rent some equipment. The costs can be extremely high. Add to that is the costs of designing, proof-reading, editing, packaging, etc. which can easily overwhelm.

My goal is to include as many types of subjects as possible. I want to teach you about how composition works differently for a different genre of photography. I will be photographing at various focal lengths like a ultra-wide lens, macro, and telephoto lenses to uncover their potential in making striking compositions.

I hope you understand the importance of this course and give your generous support when I launch it.
