For those of you who are new to this blog, I am a photographer for the national press and fine artist. I'm saying this because my job is to sell my work, so this is crucial to master.
It has taken me a few days of quiet thinking to work this one through and to share something I think will be useful to you. So here goes.
If you Google composition in photography , there are 10,500,000 millions results. A lot of them offering the same advice. This is the link to the 2nd in the list, I took a look, its all good advice.
So what else can I offer you that hasn't already been said? Simply this.
For me the best pictures tell a story. What matters is that it touches you and others in some way. All great photographers and artists do this. It evokes an emotion; joy, sadness, peace, fear, anger whatever. It's about bringing something more to the party. Treat it as a gift that you can give. If you practice this then you will get more enjoyment out of your photography and you will also give others joy, inspiration, understanding, solace or whatever emotions your picture evokes in them.
So here is the first picture I am going to choose to share with you. Over the next few days I will post different images. Images I think tell a story. My story, your story, it doesn't matter. Then go and practice your art.
