Your action plan for growing your composition skills

(Click to open the steps)

Place objects into diagonal lines

Diagonal lines makes the image more dynamic and adds the depth too. Position your subject around the intersection - where the two diagonal lines meet. 

Have a look at this newsletter, where I explain more about diagonal lines. 

Learn the basic composition techniques

The next step to improve your composition skills is to start practicing a few basic compositions, such as rule of thirds, golden ratio, golden triangle or diagonal method. These are very simple, easy to follow composition techniques that you can apply into your images. 
If you are ready to try some advanced ones, you can have a look at the golden spiral, or dynamic symmetry. 

Apply other composition techniques 

After you are confident about the basic compositions, you can add more composition techniques into your images. Try practicing these techniques and observe how your images get improve.

To list a few you can start with:

  • rule of odds - you work with the odd number of objects
  • dynamic tension - your objects face different directions
  • leading line - objects create invisible line that leads the viewer to the main subject
  • framing - you use other object to frame your main subject
  • or negative space - that helps you bring more attention to the main subject.
