How To Take Good Photos

Landscapes: Composition

alt text
  • Always keep your horizons (any horizontal lines) level in your photographs, otherwise your shots will appear crooked.
  • Many people mistakenly put the main points of interest in the centre of their photographs. Keep the main points of interest away from the centre, and from the extreme edges.
  • Don�t shoot everything from a standing position . Look for interesting angles by changing the camera position.
  • Try to avoid empty space in your photographs.
