Simplifying Composition, Photography Workshop

Learning to distill a scene down to the core elements is a great skill for any advancing photographer. For those who wish to explore this approach we will look at reducing the visual ‘noise’ at any given location. Through certain techniques, both visual and within the camera, we can help you find order in the chaos. This approach to simplifying compositions can be transferred to any type of image making scenario, be it seascapes, woodland, urban or inner landscapes.

The main theme of this Simplifying Composition workshop in Dorset will be on exploring composition as a tool to create clean, graphic and compelling images. We will look at various ways to deconstruct the landscape around you to help bring coherency and order to your compositions. Seeing shapes & form as well as understanding how light and colour can compliment or diminish the balance of a scene.

Chicago (High School Edition)

This full-length musical has been adapted to become content-appropriate for youth performers, whilst still containing all the favourite musical numbers including All That Jazz, Cell Block Tango, When You're Good to Mama and Razzle Dazzle..
Broadway’s longest-running American musical, Chicago is a dazzling and satirical look at fame, justice, and the media machine. Set in 1920s Chicago and based on real-life murders and trials.
Chicago follows Roxie Hart, a wannabe vaudevillian star who murders her lover and is arrested, despite her attempts to convince her pushover husband, Amos, to lie for her. In the Cook County Jail, Roxie meets her hero, the famed double-murderess and nightclub performer Velma Kelly. When both acquire the same lawyer, the greedy and lustful superstar, Billy Flynn, tensions come to a head as they vie for the spotlight-- though instead of onstage, they’re performing for the flashbulb of the newspaper reporters.
With catchy music and timeless lyrics by John Kander
