Composition Rules in Digital Photography

How to take better photos by applying Composition Rules

What are the key elements of a picture?

There are two main elements in a photo which everyone notices first: Exposure and Composition . There are many, many cameras on the market which allow some sort of control over the exposure, but I won’t get into a discussion about exposure here.

The next key element for better photos is Composition. There are established rules and guidelines for composition which you can apply or modify, which is a fun fact about composition rules. In almost all cases it is the composition which attracts a viewer to stay longer and really look at a photo. Here are some samples of the importance of composition.

I took these photos with a Compact Digital Camera (which means no control over exposure!).
