Sure it's easy to put off watching a video that isn't under five minutes long. Sometimes you just have to make an exception, and the weekend is the perfect time to do it. In this video, David Brommer talks about not only the rules of composition, but the theory behind the rules we all know and how they relate to our way of seeing. He takes us through the history of painting (which is the best possible thing to study for composition) and how it relates to every single image we take.
Beyond the history of composition, David also goes into great depth on the other elements that affect your composition - negative and positive space, leading lines, figure/ground relationships and ultimately how to create an image that punctuates into our subconscious.
