Today I created my favorite work, and canon camera photography pages for my blog. I also started video lessons for Foundations of Photography: Composition.
All good compositions have four things in common :
- clearly defined subject and background
- sense of balance
- point of view
- degree of simplicity
Images should always be balanced, there should be ‘layers’ something on one part of a photo should be weighted with something else on the other side.
A good point of view is necessary for a good photo, if you find something you shouldn’t just capture it right at that stance, find a low point or high point. Look for the best light and the right shadow. Don’t always rely on looking through the viewfinder, if you want to reach over a crowd, hold it above your head, if you are looking at the ground or lets say feet, hold your camera low and let the autofocus do some work.
