Make ONE photograph each, preferably in black & white, reflecting the following elements of composition: Rule of Space, Sub-Framing, Rhythm and Tempo (refer to Composition III guide). Participant images based on the assignment will be discussed to give participants al better understanding why certain images work best, compositionally.
