SWIPE to see the BEFORE SHOT 🔜
I’d like to share a bit about one of the things that helped me become a professional photographer and that’s composition, composition, composition!
So what is composition? 🤓
Composition is what guides our eyes through a photograph and gives importance to the subject in relation to the rest of the photo. ( The big trees framing me in the middle playing with leaves 🍁 ) Composition through flow, direction, and visual balance, helps drive the story behind your image and grabs your viewer’s attention. It’s one of the most important components of photography and it turns an ordinary scene to something special and you personally decided on the overall composition of the shot.
5 RULES OF COMPOSITION
1. The Rule of Thirds - The Rule of Thirds divides your scene into a 3×3 grid with equal size rectangles. To follow this rule, compose your subject in one-third of the frame or on the line.
2. Leading Lines - Leading lines are diagonal lines that naturally exist in a scene which help the viewer’s eyes move from one direction to another.
3. Reduce Clutter - Clutter is pretty much anything in the photograph that takes your attention away from your subject.
4. Contrasting Colors
5. Creative Framing
These rules aren’t set in stone rules, more guidelines, but by knowing them you’ll have a better understanding on what makes for a compelling photo. 😊📸
