Our eyes are dynamic devices that are easily deceived and manipulated with what we see and how we see. In other words, seeing is not always believing. It sounds heavy, but it’s actually a lot of fun and entertaining to see how easily our eyes can be fooled and manipulated.

Why do we care? Because understanding how it all works can help you improve your photos and the way they are seen by others. The discussion will focus on understanding visual perception problems such as Gestalt theory, where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. This is the why of the way we see, such as what makes our eyes follow certain visual principles, what color combinations vibrate and look like kinetic motion, why our eyes move and wander from soft blurry areas to sharp areas in the dark. high frequency, etc. .

All of these issues help us as photographers create photos that excite and challenge our viewers. The basic design and composition will also be discussed.
