The Rule Of Thirds Photography Class

The Rule Of Thirds Photography Class

Saturday the 1st of October
Echo Park - 12pm-3pm - 3 hours
The fascinating issue about the rule-of-thirds is the many photo opportunities it creates. For those unfamiliar with the rule-of-thirds, think of it as a visual (literally) tic-tac-toe board while looking through the viewfinder in the camera. Through this process, the positioning of the image in the viewfinder becomes the choice of the photographer. I will be explaining more about this fun method of picture taking during the class as well as answering any questions you may have. Discussion is always welcome. This park offers a pavilion, an overlook, a view of the Ohio River, and a tennis court. Looking forward to seeing you there !!

ABOUT CINCINNATI
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Cincinnati.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Cincinnati Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

William Jones was an excellent instuctor- knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and very, very patient. He was able to breakdown information that I read in the owner's manual or youtube that I could not understand into understandable, practical knowledge. The hands-on portion and materials covered have help me be a better photographer.
