RULE OF THIRDS
Horizon on lower thirds evoke spaciousness.
Horizon on upper thirds to evoke nearness.
Don't be afraid to center the subject when you think it works!
Think of where your subject is, in your frame
Technique -
Backgrounds & Foregrounds
Cameras now-a-days are advanced enough to take decent photos just by point and shoot.
Technique - Compositions
What a camera can not do, is compose the picture for you.
It is your job to decided what does in the picture by
composing the shot to what you intended it to be.
Is the subject background too busy, or does it give more focus to the subject ?
Complementing colour ? Stray objects affecting subject ?
Is there another object competing to be in the subject frame ?
Use rule of thirds to frame objects
Learn to frame objects to create a " good" composition.
Begin to use background and foreground technique to de-clutter your frame.
