More on composition


My friends at 2guysphoto have blogged about composition

http://2guysphoto.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/ask-2-guys-photo-composition-rules/

and I’ve touched on it indirectly in a few blog posts such as https://arthillphoto.wordpress.com/2011/03/21/crop-it/.

  I ran across this article that you might find interesting

 Digital Focus Composition.  I thought of some things I might have shot that illustrate his points.

Rule of Thirds

Use diagonals to your advantage

Break the monotony

or

Make it Symmetric (and Then Disturb Your Symmetry)

Position Movement Into the Frame

 

Go back through your own photos and see if you can spot examples that illustrate these same points.
