Module 5: Composition Rules and Cropping

Welcome to the fifth module of our phone photography masterclass: “Composition Rules and Cropping”. This module will guide you through the art of composing your photos and using cropping effectively to improve their impact and aesthetic appeal.

Here’s what you can expect to learn in this module:

Understanding Composition: We’ll begin with a comprehensive explanation of what composition is and why it’s crucial in photography. You’ll gain insights into the elements that make up a great composition and how to arrange your subject within your frame to create compelling photos.

Learning the Rules of Composition: You’ll learn the basics of the ‘Rule of Thirds’, ‘Leading Lines’, ‘Symmetry’, and ‘Balance’. These fundamental rules will serve as your guide while framing your photos, helping you achieve professional results with your phone camera.

Using Crop and Rotate: Not all compositions can be achieved while shooting. Sometimes, you may need to use cropping and rotating tools to fine-tune your images. We’ll explain how to use these tools effectively without compromising the image quality.

Practical Exercises: As always, we’ll provide you with assignments to implement the techniques learned in this module. You’ll have the chance to work with composition rules and cropping, gaining first-hand experience.
