Rule of Thirds

Rule of Thirds

Saturday 04 March
Nashville Farmer's Market - 10am - 2 Hours
One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. However you ignore it at your peril as it can make an average snap into something which is has tension and dynamism. In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

    Despite the cold that morning, had a great time! Nathan is very knowledgeable and calm and patient with his teaching ... he came up with good examples to explain the various concepts we were learning. Everyone got individual attention and he was willing to answer any of your questions thoroughly and to your satisfaction. Highly recommend this class!

    INSTRUCTORS
    Nathan Marsland
    Nathan was born in North Carolina, had grown up in Mississippi, and now currently lives in Nashville. He’s always been passionate about storytelling, and photography has always been one of his favorite mediums of telling tales, most notably through using film and hand developing his negatives as a way to add a more human element to his work. Nathan is primarily influenced through street photography, mostly through the works of Vivian Maier and Jim Marshall. As well as by Ansel Adams’ landscapes, and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s long exposure seascapes.
