I am so excited to officially announce a brand new video tutorial from Tony Colangelo, a long-time contributor to PFRE and one of the most respected people in our community. Over the years, many people have benefited from Tony's advice on the PFRE Flickr group and especially, from his in-depth comments made as a juror in PFRE's Photographer of the Month contest.
One of the things that Tony is best known for are his compositions and this is exactly what his video is all about. There is nothing out there like this tutorial and The Art & Science of Great Composition is going to be an excellent resource to our community for a long time!
There are over 2.5 hours of content and not a single minute is wasted. In this day and age of people taking twenty minutes to say what could be said in two, Tony cuts straight to the point and I've found myself pausing the tutorial constantly to make notes and reflect on the points he so effectively communicates.
As some of you may know, I reached out to Tony to be my coach a number of years ago and to say it was a life-altering experience would be an understatement. In our time working together, everything in my photography business has changed for the better. It all started in my first coaching session where I heard Tony's approach to composition for the first time.
He stressed the importance of understanding the psychology at play for the person looking at my photos and how it helped them decide if they liked them. Applying this understanding has improved my compositions immediately. He's also shared many subtle points related to composition that, when I applied them, would often take my photos over the top!
I know that Tony's approach has helped many others too. In fact, of the 49 Photographer of the Month contests that have taken place since my first win in April, 2015, Tony's coaching clients have won 19 of them; including four of the five contests held so far this year!
Here are a few words from Tony regarding his tutorial:
Improving your compositions is the best and quickest way to take your photography to the next level. My video tutorial does a deep dive on examining the core principles and theories behind what actually makes a great composition and thus, a great image. Using the information and methods described in this tutorial will allow you to consistently create images that will more deeply impact your clients–regardless of whether they’re real estate agents, interior designers, or architects. I'm confident that this tutorial will allow you to:
