Composition & the Art of Photography 
Led by Ted Henderer

Ted draws his inspiration for composing photographs from the other major form of 2D art, painting. He will discuss the attributes of successful composition. Ted will describe the application of composition methods used in painting to photographic art. He will discuss how the arrangement of shapes, values and gesture lines can lead the viewer’s eye into and throughout the photograph.

While a student at the University of Vermont, Ted began developing a keen interest in photography – even winning a first prize for a photography slideshow in the University’s 1969 Film Festival. Ted is a Juried-in exhibiting member of the Charleston Art Guild. He has been accepted in numerous juried art exhibitions and competitions: Gibbes 1858 Prize, ArtFields, CAG Member Exhibitions, Charleston City Gallery, and Piccolo Spoleto Art Exhibitions.

Ted enjoys photographing Lowcountry landscapes and travel and is a member of the Seabrook Island Photography Club.
