How to Shoot Well Composed Photographs

I am giving my "How to Shoot Well Composed Photographs" as a welcome gift to new subscribers to my fine art photography website

Have you ever wondered what makes a great photograph? Why does a scene look better in one picture than the next? The main ingredient is the "photographic composition”.

A photographer is responsible for everything that is included in the frame and decides what to include, what to leave out and how each element is placed within that frame. Think of your camera's frame as a painter's canvas. We have a limited space to arrange the objects that we capture. By following compositional rules we make the best use of that space. By placing important picture elements in certain areas within the frame we can determine how the viewer's eye travels, where it stops and what it sees in the photograph. The composition makes the picture.

I explain and show examples to five most important and time tested compositional rules in my guide to help one train his or her eye for great looking photographs.
