Composition can make an interesting subject bland or make an ordinary subject appear beautiful. In this course, photographer and author Ben Long explores the concepts of composition, from basics such as the rule of thirds to more advanced topics such as the way the eye travels through a photo. The course addresses how the camera differs from the eye and introduces composition fundamentals, such as balance and point of view. Ben also examines the importance of geometry, light, and color in composition, and looks at how composition can be improved with a variety of post-production techniques. Interspersed throughout the course are workshop sessions that capture the creative energy of a group of photography students; shooting assignments and exercises; and analyses of the work of photographers Paul Taggart and Connie Imboden.

We'll begin this process by learning about what composition is and how we can use various types of composition to direct the viewer's eye through a drawing, painting, photograph or sculpture based off of how we position and arrange visual elements. From there, I'll be walking you through a series of lessons focusing on some key compositions types. In each lesson we'll examine several works of art by famous artists throughout history to see how they employed various types of composition to engage the viewer.
Finally, we'll finish out this course with a series of lessons focusing on fleshing out our own composition by incorporating some of the composition types we've covered.By gaining an understanding of these different composition types you'll be able to create stronger pieces of art that are more creative, appealing, and engaging to the viewer's eye.

Most unsuccessful paintings are ruined before the brush even gets to the canvas. Why?
Weak composition. There's no structure. No foundation.
If you start a painting that lacks structure–well, you know the experience… repainting this part, overworking that and getting lost and frustrated about how to proceed. And until that structural problem is understood it will continue to plague, frustrate and hamper each painting's progress and success.
Composition is the bedrock of every good representational painting.
For something as fundamental as this it's surprising it isn't isolated and taught more often.
Go to the list of classes at your local art college and see if you can find a course on composition.Ian Roberts has taught painting to hundreds of students in Provence and Tuscany, as well as the U.S. through his school Atelier Saint-Luc. He realized after teaching workshops for the past ten years to both beginners and professionals, if there was room for one badly needed teaching tool to help representational painters, composition was it.
