Composition

▶Following composition can enhance your photo. It helps take more compelling photos, it has natural balance, and can draw attention to the main subject, or lead your viewer’s eyes into the image. It combines different elements together.

Rule Of Thirds

Imagining your image is divided into 9 equal segments by 2 horizontal & vertical lines. It balances your photo and creates a more interesting effect. (1) is sectioned off to the left and focuses on the dandelion. (2) is sectioned off to the left and focuses on the flower. (3) is sectioned off to the right and focuses on the card.

Balancing Elements

The subject is off center like the rule of thirds. There is also a background that goes with the subject, but the background is ‘less important.’ (1)‘s main subject is the tree bark, and the background is the tree branch. (2) focuses on branch with leaves and has a background of many other braches with leaves. (3) has a main focus of the Sargent Park sign, and has a background of a part of the school and a flag.

Symmetry and Patterns

▶ There are natural and man-madepatterns surrounding us. They can enhance your image by catching compositions. They are in places where you least expect it. It breaks the symmetry or pattern in some way, and makes a focal point to the scene. All my images contain symmetry and patterns. (1) has symmetry right down the middle and has patterns of squares. (2) has symmetry through the middle and has the doors as a pattern. (3) has symmetry right through the middle and has the lockers as a pattern.

Viewpoint

▶The view point of an image has a great impact on our photo. You can shoot pictures from eye level, from the side, the ground, etc. (1) is taken from a ground level, having the camera face up. (2) is taken from a side view. (3) is taken from the ground, as it shows detail of the rocks and dirt.

Framing

▶There are natural frames around uslike trees and holes. Placing the surroundings around the main subjecthelps focuses its attention to it. Itnaturally draws your eye to the main point of interests. (1) uses trees to focus on the cars. (2) uses lockersto focus on the people in the hallway. (3) has trees that frame the sides andhas the main focus of the lake.

Cropping

▶The main subject is cropped tight to eliminate the background. It ensures that the subject has the viewers attention. (1) focuses on the boxes, and blurs on the background. (2) focuses on the volleyball, and blurs on the background. (3) focuses on the card and blurs out the remaining cards in the background.

(2) has aviewpoint of looking upwards as welland is sectioned to the left. (3) has an oblique view point, and does not have a busy background.
