Transcript

  • 1. Rules of Composition
  • 2. Composition
    • Composition is all about planning, positioning and arranging elements in a photograph so that the image communicates as powerfully as it can.
    • There can be more than one element in a photo
  • 3. Rule of Thirds
    • The Rule of Thirds is based on the fact that the human eye is naturally drawn to a point about two-thirds up a page.
    • Crop your photo so that the main subjects are located around one of the intersection points rather than in the center of the image

    • Get above and below your subject for a different view.
    • Capture all views: above, below, left and right.
    • Move Around!
    • Take more than one photo of your subject
  • 11. Worms Eye View
    • From below
    • Get down on the ground and look up

  • 27. Natural Framing
    • This means to frame the center of interest with objects in the foreground.
    • This can give a picture the feeling of depth it needs to make it more than just another snapshot.

  • 37. Lighting
    • Always be aware of the light sources around you!
    • Where you stand changes how the lighting affects the subject
    • Keep in mind that the weather outside has an effect on the lighting
    • Watch for ugly fluorescent lights on the ceiling
    • Don’t backlight your subject unless it adds to the photo

    • Look for people in uniforms, people lined on fences, sitting in rows or standing in a line.
  • 48.  
  • 49.  
  • 50.  
  • 51. Leading Lines
    • Leading lines are natural objects in a photo that lead to the main subject
    • They should draw the readers eye up or across a photo right to a subject
    • Just because there are lines in a picture does not make them leading lines! They must have a purpose!!
  • 52.  
  • 53.

    • Use the photos to tell a story about yourself
      • Family
      • Pets
      • Things that show who you are
    • NO “facebook” or “myspace” photos!
