Composition techniques

Photographic composition techniques are used to set up the elements of a picture. Although these rules do vaguely work, they should be subjectively applied to an image in relation to its purpose and general intent.

RULE OF THIRDS                                                                                                         uyhj  Screen Shot 2015-01-04 at 13.12.31The rule of thirds is a compositional rule stating that the subject of an image should be placed in the furthest third of a frame. Although this certainly isn’t the best example of the rule it does roughly apply the technique with the tree being places in the left third of the image.


LEADING LINES

Leading lines are lines within an image that leads the eye to a desired point of an image (in this case the main subject). Sometimes a photographer may intentionally use the lines to draw the viewer away from the main subject.

LOW ANGLE

The subject was taken by a camera positioned at a low angle, typically making the subject seem bigger and more substantial (and even threatening).
