Composition is one of the most nebulous and difficult concepts to discuss and work on in photography, but it's also one of the most important to master. This great video will give you four tips to help improve your compositions.
Coming to you from James Popsys, this helpful video will give you four tips to improve your photo compositions, with a focus on landscape work. Among the most salient points Popsys makes is the idea of paying attention to the entire frame. It is quite common when you're first starting out to focus entirely on your subject to the detriment of the overall composition. Of course, it's important to pay attention to how the subject is rendered, but a great subject can still make for a failed photo if there's something else in the frame detracting from it. I often made this mistake and wouldn't even notice until I came home, loaded the photos into Lightroom, and noticed something I never saw in the moment. Check out the video above for more of Popsys' tips.
