Sometimes, it gets almost too easy to get all involved in the technical aspects of a photography, such as aperture, shutter, ISO, depth of field, etc without even realizing that the most important aspect of photography is slipping away: composition.
Remember: a simple photo delivers a powerful message. So this week, when on a shoot, ask yourself this question over and over again:
“What is my subject ?”
Then, look at your photo. Your subject should be the first thing that pops into your mind when looking at your photo. If it doesn’t, recompose and try again, cause chances are if you cannot easily recognize the subject of the your photo, your audience won’t either. Happy shooting.
