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 that everyone notices first: Exposure and Composition. Many cameras on the market allow some control over the exposure, but I won’t discuss exposure here.

The next essential 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, the composition 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!).

Just by changing the camera orientation, you can create two completely different photos. In this photo, I used Landscape Orientation.
