Composition Webinar

In this B&H Video, David Brommer starts with cave paintings, quickly works his way through Egyptian and Medieval art and arrives in the Renaissance to demonstrate the advancement of composition and the birth of the Rule of Thirds. From there, he offers a wonderfully comprehensive yet down to earth lesson in photo history, theory and equipment, but most important, he demonstrates the basics of photographic composition and what makes a “good” photo.

How to Configure Printer Settings for Third-Party Papers

As some of you may recall, in the Fall of 2011, Renée Besta wrote a very detailed, three-part series of articles on HDR Photography and Printing for Breathing Color, a company that manufactures fine art papers for printing. The company also sponsored an exhibit Renée produced back when she was President of the Central Coast Photographic Society – the very first 'Photomorphosis' show at the SLO Museum of Art.

This series of articles covered the entire workflow for making great HDR prints that really pop, from proper camera color and HDR settings, to color management, monitor calibration and profiling, HDR post-processing, stylizing images, ICC profiles, and the complete printing workflow.

Well, over three years later, Renée is back working with Breathing Color, and will be involved in writing articles for their blog as well as doing podcasts and maybe even some webinars. For those Camera Club members who do their own inkjet printing, these articles may be of use.


If you are interested in printing and have time, please read her newest article and let her know what you think. And if you have any positive comments to make, she would greatly appreciate your taking time to do that on the blog, as it would really help her.
