The Art of Composition: Tips for Creating Beautiful Pictures That Stand Out


    Composition in photography.

    Rules in Composition

    1. Symmetry
    2. Rule of Thirds
    3. Balance
    4. Leading Lines
    5. Repetition
    6. dominance
    7. and more

    The Art of Composition. If you want to take amazing photographs you first need to learn the Exposure Triangle and be proficient at it. If you are still trying to figure out how to get an exposure you will not be able to focus on all the factors in composition. Everything you present to the viewer in an image is important. Beginners tend to only focus on the subject. I spend most of my time in beginning photography classes point out all the horrible backgrounds.

    The video entails some history of “What is Beautiful,” and all the different rules of composition. This does not mean you need to apply every rule all the time. I use a lot of images to explain the rule and images to explain what breaks the rule. In time you will find what you like in an image. I hope this video helps in you journey to produce amazing images.

    Pros and Cons of DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras

    If you have not heard, the DSLR market is on its way out and the Mirrorless market is the future. The main issue with the switch from DSLR to Mirrorless has been the mount change with Canon And Nikon. Yes, you can use an adaptor mounts to convert old Canon and Nikon lenses to work on the new mirrorless mounts. If you are using Sony no worries because they only make Mirrorless camera and nothing has changed.

    I have a Facebook Group called, “Learn Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Bridge.” I created this group because I get a lot of questions on YouTube that are hard to answer unless I can see the issue. This will allow a place you can ask questions, and more importantly post images and videos.
