Photographic CompositionGenerally the term composition means“putting together”.Photographic composition is simply the selection andarrangement of subjects (elements) within the picture area.Effective photo composition is made by:1. Placing objects in appropriate positions.2. Choosing an appropriate point of view.3. Waiting for the opportune moment.
Photographic CompositionSome rules of composition• Rule of thirds• Framing• Visual cropping• Vantage Point, where the photographer stands• Balance• Perspective (scale)• Moving in close• Action• Leading lines• Converging lines
• This is more a guideline then a rule.• The theory is that if you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines that your photo becomes more balanced and will enable a viewer of the image to interact with it more naturally.
