Gestalt Theory of Composition - Folsom Lake - Mormon Island - 9 am - 2 hours
The standard definition of gestalt is: A configuration or pattern of elements so unified as a whole that it cannot be described merely as a sum of its parts.

In other words, it describes how people group visual elements into unified groups and associations, or how relationships are created and understood.

In this session we will be working on composition skill building.

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.

And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

So wonderful to be able to learn while being safe. Laurie was well organized and invited questions and learning. Think her asking class members for images and being able to edit within our group was very beneficial.

Laurie and the group were very welcoming on my first event with them! Laurie was there to answer any questions if we had them, but we were more than able to independently wander and find the shots that we liked.
