Transcript of Composition

Composition Leading Lines Leading lines are lines that are used to draw the viewers attention to a certain spot in the photo. The lines can be very obvious.... Or a little more subtle. Sometimes they're curved.... And sometimes they're just implied. More Examples Rule Of Thirds Framing The subject of the photo is not placed right in the center. If you were to split the photo into 9 squares, the majority of the subject would be in the outer 8 squares or on a grid line. The majority of the dollar bill is on the outer 8 squares. This subject is on a place where 2 grid lines cross. There is a frame (implied or literal), in the foreground or background that frames the main subject.

Change the viewpoint to something that's different than how you would normally view your subject. Take a picture of the subject that's higher than where you normally view the subject from eye level. Take a picture of the subject that's lower than where you would normally view it from eye level. You want the background to be as non-distracting as pssible with this technique. Use a background that is mostly a solid color. It's a simple way to have a non-distracting background. If you can't get the distracting elements out of the background, blur them so they don't take away from the subject.

Layering Put your subject in the foreground, or stagger the main subject(s) from the foreground to the background to add depth.
