Photography 101 – Solitude-07-11-2014

Cette photo a été prise en Charente-Maritime à Pons où j’y ai vécu il y a quelques années. Sur la pelouse, ce champignon solitaire. Il était si mignon que je n’ai pas pu m’empêcher de prendre la photo pour immortaliser cette « solitude » dans toute cette herbe à l’automne. Cette photo est totalement centrée et cela a été voulu de ma part  🙂

This photo was taken in Charente-Maritime Pons where I lived there a few years ago. On the lawn, this lonely mushroom. He was so cute I could not help but take a picture to capture this « solitude » in all this grass in the fall. This photo is totally focused and it was intended for me 🙂

Tip: As you frame your shot, apply the tried-and-true Rule of Thirds, which is a great introductory lesson in composition. Divide your shot into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, so you get nine parts. Your camera probably has the option to display this grid in your viewfinder or LCD screen. But if not, envision this atop your frame :


Place your subject at the intersections of these lines, or along them. In the mosque shot, the placement of the woman, toward the bottom-right, creates a more dynamic, pleasing composition. This off-center placement aligns with how our eyes naturally interact with images.

Rules are meant to be broken, of course, especially since each image is different! Today, experiment with this grid as you frame your solitary subject.
