If you are just starting out on photography, you’ve probably heard about the RULES OF COMPOSITION. When you hear about those rules, it can be kinda intimidating, especially if they are referred to in all CAPS. The truth is that those rules are actually guidelines that formulate what is visually pleasing to the eye.
The team at COOPH who are really good at cutting down to the chase, made a short movie explaining 9 of these rules. You may have heard them already or you read them in a book, but it is always a great refresher to see all those rules condensed into such a short time frame.
Just in case you want a written refresher, here is a list of those nine rules:
- Rule of thirds
- Using leading lines
- Diagonal lines create movement
- The importance of framing
- contrast figure and background
- Get close to your subjects
- Center the dominant eye
- Patterns are aesthetically pleasing
- Use Symmetry
