Ya know, it's not really that hard to turn a snapshot into a great shot . . . if you use a little imagination.
Above left is a snapshot, taken only a few feet away from where I took the shot on the right. Same lens. Same exposure. Same light.
The difference: Composition.
"Composition is the strongest way of seeing." Edward Weston
Good composition is one of the key elements in a good photograph.
For more examples of creative composition, see my latest work in my latest app, iHDR. Yes, the app is about HDR photography, but composition is important is all photography - which is something I stress in all my seminars and workshops.
