Visual compostion2

  1. 1. Composition is one of the most important features of a good photograph. Awell-composed photograph is symmetrical, proportionate and well lit; in thissense, composition in photography is similar to "mis en scene" in film.However, composition standards are very high in photography, becausephotography is an exclusively visual medium. Guidelines for composition arenaturally somewhat subjective; however, most photographers agree on a fewbasic ones. These guidelines are not rules and are not followed by allphotographers.
  2. 2. • Line are one of the basic elements of design.
