William Morton led a Digital Photo Academy class in Balboa Park this weekend. The class, titled “Composition In The Field“, is a fun photo safari for the students. The idea is that if you were dropped out of a plane at any place in the world, you would be able to create good, interesting images there. This month’s trek included the beautiful buildings of Balboa Park, along with a variety of flowers in the Botanical building – a few of which are shown below. Each student is challenged with capturing images that illustrate six rules of composition, including:

  • Rule of Thirds
  • Leading Lines
  • Symmetry and Patterns
  • “Primary Point of Interest” Isolation
  • Cropping and Framing
  • Viewpoint and Perspective
