Think Like a Camera series
The PhotoBotanic Garden Photography Workshops
The camera sees in two dimensions. The shapes and spaces created within the four edges of the frame need to be balanced. Those shapes often include negative space that may result when the three dimensions of real life are reduced down to only two in a photo.
Space and Shape is the fifth lesson in THINK LIKE A CAMERA, the second series of the PhotoBotanic Garden Photography Workshop with garden photographer Saxon Holt. The camera is an artistic tool that frames a composition in two dimensions. Learn techniques of lines, shape, and focal points found in all good gardens to fill the frame with strong compositions.
