For today’s picture I decided to try and apply some compositional rules that I have been learning from an online video that I purchased from PhotoTips.biz . I haven’t made it through all of the videos yet but here is what rules I applied:
Simplify – I made sure that when I setting up the shot it was against a blank wall
Closer – Instead of taking a headshot of me smiling I decided to get closer to my subject, my smile.
Rule of Thirds – Notice how your eye was immediately drawn to my smile? I would have liked to think it was just my wonderful smile BUT it is because I positioned my smile in my picture where an eye naturally goes first.
