Hosted by Daniel j Gregory

Episode Number: 437

This week on the Perceptive Photographer, we are taking at look at some key considerations or questions to ask yourself about your photographic compositions.

  1. Are the objects in your composition with purpose, or are they a distraction? And, more importantly, if they are a distraction, are they a distraction of purpose?
  2. Where to your leading lines lead? After all, lines move two directions.
  3. How do you approach your two-dimensional space verse your three dimensional space?
  4. How much emotional space are you leaving as part of the composition?
