Quick Photography Composition

I am teaching digital photography this week to elementary and middle school students, and it's a blast! We have discussed the following composition elements:

landscape vs portrait
diagonal lines
bright colors
removing clutter from photos
shirts with words on them interferring with photograph
framing subjects
using an odd number of subjects

Yesterday we looked at images from Robert Weingarten. Take a look! They are beautiful. He will be in Atlanta the beginning of next year at the Lumiere Gallery and a show at the High Museum of Art.

The children are creating a beautiful wall of their work!
