Composing the Photo: Creating Order from Chaos

A well-composed photo has a poetic balance. The feeling is one of perfection, as if that one moment on Earth was special, and it was captured in the absolute perfect manner. Composition is difficult to study as it has to do with our perception and attention to detail, but it can be improved through knowledge and practice. Top travel photographer Trey Ratcliff agreed to give our readers 15% off his popular in-depth composition guide. Found here: Creating Order from Chaos

‘I sometimes equate learning composition to learning a golf swing. I notice that people that have a good golf swing (not me) whisper little reminders to themselves from time to time. They practice here and there, even when they are not holding a golf club! Like Buddhists, they chant mantras like, “Cock your wrist here,” and, “Shift weight to left leg,” et cetera. We should try to achieve the same goal with composition. I want you thinking about it all the time, even when you are not holding a camera.
