  2. 2. What is Instagram and why I use it
  3. 3. Afterlight
  4. 4. I follow artists, friends (sometimes), companies, bloggers, photographers. Why do I follow them?
  5. 5. Basic Composition 1.Be clear on your subject. What story are you trying to tell with the photo? 2. Draw attention to the subject. This can be done by simply getting closer, by using selective focus, color, by lighting just the subject, by framing the subject in a doorway or window, etc. 3. Simplify. Simple is best. Remove anything that doesn’t help you tell the story.
  6. 6. 4. Fill the frame. You can rarely go wrong by filling the frame with the main subject. You don’t have to add background for the sake of adding background. 5. Use the RULE OF THIRDS. Draw a Tic-Tac-Toe board over your picture in your mind. Position the subject at one of the four intersecting corners in the grid.
  7. 7. 6. Add depth by including strong foreground objects in shots where the background is also important. 7. Shoot vertically to enhance tall objects or to emphasize height. Shoot horizontally to emphasize width. 8. Use patterns, leading lines to attract the viewer’s eye where you want it to go.
  8. 8. 9. Make sure there is separation between multiple subjects to avoid unsightly merges. 10. Right before you make the photo take a second, look up, look down, look all around and make sure there’s nothing you’re missing. *But most importantly, break the rules often and have fun! www.amyshutt.com www.amyshuttworkshops.com amyshutt@gmail.com
