Composition is how we arrange visual elements to communicate our ideas about the subject and
to engage the viewer. In this class, we will explore the basics of photography composition, most
of which are applicable to drawing and painting as well. We will give examples illustrating
standard “rules of thumb”, including the first rule: “There are no rules”! This event includes the
main workshop providing tips on landscape photography and composition plus an optional field

years, he has taught prior photography courses as well. His works were recently featured at the
Hoffman Gallery in Manzanita. Some of Michael’s photographs can be viewed, among other
places, on the www.tillamookbirder website, which he webmasters. Currently, Michael is a
