Picture Decisions: The Vantage Point and Frame
In Module Four we will turn to concepts related to the way photographs look, and how practical decisions that are unique to photography can have a dramatic effect in terms of what their creative content might be. We examine the aspects of Vantage Point and Frame as essential choices that must be made by photographers no matter what their ultimate goal for image-making.

We also introduce the Peer Review process for paid Learners and the ways we can learn about our own ideas through using “terms of art” in written reviews of the photographs of fellow Learners.
