Nature Photography and the Six Principles of Art

What’s the secret to improving your nature, wildlife, or travel photos? You can better hone your composition skills, develop a keener eye for natural light, and express your moments in nature in more emotional tones and you will certainly create more compelling images. You could also learn from the design principles used by master painters and artists through the centuries in creating their timeless masterpieces. These Six Principles of Art (sometimes listed as Principles of Design and/or contain as many seven or even eight components) are the guiding precepts in what makes art and design more aesthetically pleasing to the human eye and brain. Richard will discuss each of these principles and teach you how to apply them to your photography.
