Photography Tip: One More Class You Should Definitely Take
In high school, I took a mandatory art appreciation class that I never imagined would be applicable later in life. Fast forward to today, I thank my lucky stars that I did (surprising revelation, right?). Taking a basic art class lays the foundation for concepts like
Color theory: complementary colors, the color wheel, symbolism
Elements of design: points, lines, planes, solids
The golden rectangle
Linear perspective, vanishing points
And much, much more!
At one of the colleges I attended for photography, Art "101" was actually a prerequisite for photography majors. Gee, I wonder why.
