Visual Design Of A Photograph
The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)

To gain a fundamental understanding of the visual design behind a photograph, one must do so by: Identifying the subject, arranging the elements in the frame to best emphasize the subject, and choosing the right tools to express an idea/emotion. These steps will draw the viewer’s eye through the photograph.
