Improving your composition #photography

Whatever stage of your photographic journey you’re at, you can always improve your composition. It doesn’t matter if you have a cheap pocket camera or a full frame DSLR, better composition will give you better photos.

In the old days of the film camera, we needed all the light we could get and to a certain extent that is still true. To get the maximum amount of light photographers often shot with the sun behind them but that can produce an image devoid of shadows. Some shadow can make for a better composition.



Composition and perspective challenge #photography

Last week, I challenged you to take a few photos with a narrow aperture. This week, I want you to think about composition and perspective. When you take a landscape photo, you need to give it some perspective so the viewer sees depth. Lowry did paintings of simple figures what were once described as matchstick men. His genius was getting the proportions right and creating depth in his paintings.

Thinking about composition #photography

“In the visual arts, composition is the placement or arrangement of visual elements or ingredients in a work of art, as distinct from the subject.

Thinking about the light #photography

I take lots of different kinds of photos. Sometimes it is landscapes and other times I’m asked to photograph groups of people. I’m always thinking about the light. A sunny day with lots of light doesn’t always give us the best conditions. A day when we have even white cloud gives us a better-diffused light than when we have bright sunlight. Often in bright sunlight, the shadows are really dark and despite the bright light we need to use fill flash to remove the dark shadows. Photographs send out a message and in this photo the message was simple. I wanted to say how busy Wednesbury market was!

Narrowboat on canal composition


The Bank holiday weekend was a bit of a washout but I drove through the heavy rain to the narrowboat gathering at Tipton on Sunday. As you can see from this picture it was deserted! I was able to think about the composition of my pictures and contrast the bright colours again the grey. (more…)
