Photography rules

  1. Rule of Thirds: Divide the frame into thirds horizontally and vertically. Place the subject on the intersection of those lines to create a more interesting composition.

  2. Use leading lines: Look for lines in the scene to help guide the viewer's eye towards the subject. This could be anything from a road or a fence to the contours of a mountain.

  3. Understand Exposure: Exposure is a combination of shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Each one affects how much light enters the camera. Learning how to control them will help you achieve the desired exposure for your shot.

  4. Pay attention to lighting: Lighting is everything in photography. Pay attention to the direction, intensity, and quality of light. Shadows and highlights can add dimension and texture to your images.

  5. Avoid camera shake: Camera shake is the enemy of sharp images. Use a tripod or hold the camera steady to prevent blur.

  6. Keep it simple: Simple is often better. Avoid cluttered backgrounds and keep your subject the main focus of the image.

  7. Try different angles: Move around and experiment with different angles and perspectives. Shoot from high up, down low, or from the side to create a unique and interesting image.

  8. Post-processing: Use photo editing software to enhance your images. Adjust the exposure, contrast, and colors to create a final image that matches your vision.
