  1. 1. Composition Rules<br />
  2. 2. Simplicity<br />
  3. 3. Simplicity<br />Look for ways to give the center of interest in your pictures the most visual attention. One way is to select uncomplicated backgrounds that will not steal attention from your subjects. <br />
  4. 4. Simplicity<br />
  5. 5. Rule of Thirds<br />
  6. 6. Rule of Thirds<br /><ul><li>Before you snap the picture, imagine your picture area divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The intersections of these imaginary lines suggest four options for placing the center of interest for good composition. The option you select depends upon the subject and how you would like that subject to be presented. </li></li></ul><li>Rule of Thirds<br />
  7. 7. Lines<br />
  8. 8. Lines<br />Diagonal lines are dynamic<br />You can use diagonals as leading lines to provide a way into the picture. It's a simple and easy path for the eye to follow to the main subject. <br />You can also use repetitive lines to draw viewers' attention to your center of interest. <br />One of the most common and graceful lines used in composition is called the S curve. <br />

  10. 10. Balance<br />
  11. 11. Balance<br />Good balance is simply the arrangement of shapes, colors, or areas of light and dark that complement one another so that the photograph looks well-balanced. <br />
  12. 12. Balance<br />
  13. 13. Framing<br />
  14. 14. Framing<br />Frame the center of interest with objects in the foreground.<br />This can give a picture the feeling of depth it needs to make it more than just another snapshot. <br />
  15. 15. Framing<br />
  16. 16. Avoiding Mergers<br />
  17. 17. Avoiding Mergers<br />We see things in three dimensions, so it's easier than you might guess to focus our eyes on the principal subject only and not see that background at all.<br />
