Tip #14 Composition

Composition goes right along with telling a story with photos.

  • Draw attention to your subject, get closer, use color, adjust the light, and frame the subject.
  • Fill the frame with your subject.  Don’t leave too much background unless there is a good reason to.
  • Use the rule of thirds.  This guideline proposes that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.  Keep this in mind when looking through the view finder or the display on the camera screen.
