6 Great Tips to Improve the Compositions in Your Portraits

While things like choosing camera settings are fairly objective, composition is a bit more nebulous and is often something that gives photographers a bit of trouble. If you have been struggling with your portrait compositions, this excellent video will give you six helpful tips that will improve your photos.

Coming to you from Joel Grimes Photography, this awesome video discusses six tips for improving the compositions of your portrait photos. Composition is often one of the last major aspects photographers master and is something we have all struggled with at one time or another. While heuristic methods like the rule of thirds are fine for the most part, if you want to really start to develop your own style and stand out from the crowd, it is important to start taking a deeper, more multi-layered approach that takes into consideration the context of each shot and what exactly you are trying to convey with it. Once you can do this, you'll notice your shots improving dramatically. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Grimes.
