People Photography Week – Saturday

This week will be devoted to people photography – by popular request on twitter. Wildlife photography was the second choice. Over at DPE, my friend Juan Pons is offering a week of wildlife photography tips. So you get the best of both worlds!

I took all the photographs for this week’s blog posts on a workshop in Venice, Italy organized by VSP Workshops.

Saturday’s Tip: Dead Center is Deadly. Position the subject off-center for a more creative photography. When you do that, when someone looks at your picture, their eyes will move around the picture looking for other elements in the scene – rather than getting stuck on the subject.

Canon 1Ds Mark III
Lens: Canon 24-105mm IS.
