A photo subject can be the same, yet captured in so many different ways. What makes one photograph stand out above the others? It is simple: a great composition.

Understanding how our vision responds to an image is the first step in achieving success. From the basics of line, color and form to the use of more advanced techniques, we will explore and discuss different artistic approaches used to create better photos and help you become a better photographer. Creativity spreads… come and catch it!

Learn how to use photography as a tool to promote conservation while learning more about Piping Plovers and a 2019 project with Duxbury Beach Reservation in Massachusetts.
