In this program, David Brommer covers the basic concepts of composition as established by the masters of the Renaissance. Commencing with the classic rule of thirds and leaping into theories of color and balance, David will touch upon a range of topics, including: image construction, positive and negative space, as well as other advanced composition concepts. General shooting questions like, “Is the shot better if it’s a horizontal or vertically composed?” and conceptual ideas such as integrating theme and subject context are explored. Another factor to be considered is color vs. black and white, and how these two treatments can influence the visual impact of the photograph. Just when your head is spinning with new cropping and composing ideas, David will demonstrates special shooting techniques including how to create a pan blur, zooming the lens during exposure and low angle (worms eye view) shooting tips.

Great fashion photography reflects and shapes the era in which it is made, from wartime to economic booms, fashion design and the imagery that defines it have shown us where our boundaries lie and how we seek to embrace or break them. A fashion photograph is about lifestyle, desire, fantasy, sensuality, and, unavoidably, the state of commerce. It is about wanting to be the person inside the clothes, or wanting to have one’s life shown within the image. It is also about identity, subculture, and the desire to belong. If you are a student, aspiring photographer, or working professional, building a fashion portfolio that aspires to this standard can be daunting. Thomas Werner, author of the book, The Fashion Image, shares his insight into each of these aspects of fashion and the ways in which you can create innovative shoot concepts to help you achieve your goals.
