Emma Davis has shared a great video on composition, to help make photos more appealing….
Composition tips to consider include:
- The rule of thirds
- Leading Lines
- Single Focal point
- Triangles ( use odd number and position in triangles3’s and 5’s)
So far this year … I have not really looked at repetition or symmetry in my photos…. so that is something I should consider in future….
So today’s photo – stuck indoors again… I tried to get the white’s whiter (a sheet of A3 paper) – this time using artificial lighting (it was early evening in the conservatory), on camera flash with a bounce card reflecting the light upwards and a tripod, after watching Emma’s composition video I also made sure the colours of the objects I photographed were complimentary, there was an odd number of objects – a natural triangle, that I had considered the focal point (the front bottle) and the rule of thirds … it is amazing how all these elements can come together.
Todays Lens was my Sigma DC 19-250mm lens 1:3.5-6.3 HSM – this is the lens I tend to keep on my camera the most, and I am really pleased with the shot.
