Composition Master Class

The Next Level of Training for a Photographer
In this course I go over how I find my compositions, show you behind the scenes of me finding the "right" shot and how I retouch and finalize my photos once I have figured out the correct composition for my photo's message.

I get a lot of photos from fans and photographers from around the world. I find that a lot of people master Photoshop & Lightroom very quickly but to take their photo career, as a professional or even a hobby, to that next level is how to find the right composition for their photos.

So for this training, I have done my best to really share the rules I'm using, my personal process and what can make a photo good or really great!
