Product Description
This is a short video demonstration of visual composition. We are lead through a basic discussion by Valentine, an artist who paints landscapes in New England. First we learn how to make a sliding frame used to define a single composition within a broader landscape. Looking at several landscape compositions we then identify the perspective lines within each. A suggested assignment: take a few photographs outside and then print the shots. By drawing perspective lines on the photo scenes, students learn the basics of foreground and background. This lesson is helpful as a first step in finding compositions that work and in understanding why they work.
