A New Photographer’s Guide to Composition

I took photography up as a serious hobby, quite late in life, only about 7 years ago, but had been taking photos of holidays, family events etc., for about 50 years before then! It was only after I had joined a local camera club and started to learn about the art of composition that I began to actually look through the lens and think about what I was doing, instead of simply pointing the camera at an object and pressing the shutter.

This excellent article from Picture Corect, written by Alphonso Sanchez, founder of www.IrisMasters.com, shows others how to open their eyes to the breathtaking photo opportunities all around them.

It’s easy to be swept away by the technical demands most DSLR cameras require. But as a new photographer, it’s critical that you develop your composition skills. Your ability to compose a powerful, visually captivating image is one of the most important keys to a great photograph. So how do you begin? First, let’s dive into what composition is and what composition isn’t. Many beginners get the wrong notion of the skill and as a result find improvement difficult, if not impossible.
