Composition is a direct reflection on the photographer. Certain aspects can be learned, yet your personal viewpoint seeps through in every photograph we create.
Our photographic vision reflects our inner self, and where we are emotionally at the point of the photograph. It is basically impossible to separate our inner turmoil from showing in our photographs.
Photography is the immediate recording of the environment, both in the physical world in front of the camera lens and our inner self. One does not exist without the other.
Like all other life adventures, photography is part of the journey to ourselves.
Tip of the Day. . .Even if the chaos in our lives shows through in our photographs, look for the qualities shown in the images that reflects a “story.” The best images show or trigger an emotion in the viewer. Remember, we are our own worst critics. . .
Happy Shooting. . .Karen
