Photo Composition Introduction Part 2

September 15, 2019

So what makes for an interesting composition, well take this why I’m standing in here there are certain components that work
together harmoniously to make it pleasing to look at for
example we got a row of beach huts here this sweeping from the bottom right hand
corner of the image all the way up and across to the left where
they meet the Pier and that is running out just below the
top of the frame along the horizon line so you’ve got this leading line of the
beach huts from here across diagonally and then out across
the top. But how do you start to recognize where the
situations occur many years ago i used to work on a rubbish tip, driving a huge great big bulldozer I happen to find the box the slides and
somebody had taken and sadly they’ve been thrown out I was looking at these images there are
some of the most amazingly beautiful pictures I have ever seen and I really
really wish I’d kept them i looked at these pictures and looked at them and i thought why is this guys picture so great when mine are so rubbish I started making little piles of pictures because i noticed certain themes going on in those images sometimes if you’re shooting from underneath a tree or they’ll be a rock in the foreground I kinda had a foreground pile and a shooting under a tree pile, i noticed there were rules it was like he was doing something over and over again. now as time went on I started reading
magazines and really teaching myself about photography I discovered that those rules actually
have names such as the rule of thirds or the rule of lead in lines and there are more by using these rules
and applying them you can begin to take really great
images once you learn the rules of by heart you start to break them and when you know the rules and you
break them you go from interesting images two amazing images

  5. Hi Mike. I instantly became a big fan with only a few videos. Now I’m hooked and I think you’re a great teacher along with Jenny. Thank you very much.

  6. I can see a triangle, formed by the row of beach huts and the pier in the distance. Thank you, Mike. You have changed me from a point and shoot – shooter, into one who is more concerned with rules of composition rather than just 'taking photo's'.
    Thanks to you also, I am mastering ISO, shutter speed and aperture. Thanks a million!

  7. Hey Mike, always enjoy your videos, very informative, if I ever make it across "The Pond", I would enjoy visiting with you, and going on a Photo Shoot together.
