What do the above and below photographs have in common?
Both photographs were composed and exposed carefully.
When you think about it, photography is all about getting a well-composed and creatively exposed image. Master those techniques, and you are on your way to mastering photography.
I know, I know! A good subject is important, too. :-)
Actually, those two elements - lighting and composition - are important in painting, too - as illustrated my Vermeer's "Girl with the Pearl Earring" painting (left), and my humble rendition of the masterpiece on the right.
In my workshops, I focus on those topics. If you can't make a workshop, I have two classes on Kelby Training that I think you will enjoy:
Composition - the strongest way of seeing.
Light - the main element in every photograph.
Quick composition tip: stick out your neck and break the so-called rules.
As always . . . .
