Rule of thirds.
A couple of weeks ago, I went to a mentoring session for women photographers here in Tucson. It was really eye-opening for me. I found out that I am having issues with white balance and composition. So, I was graciously gifted some ExpoDiscs to help with my white balance from another photographer, and then last weekend, I went on a photography class to the Tucson Zoo to learn about composition. I learned so much from the instructor and had a great time at the zoo! It was my first time there. Glad my first time was with a photography group instead of my family, because I’m sure they would have been really frustrated with me with all of the pictures I keep taking!
This, of course, has no animals in it. But the instructor was showing me how to get the perfect composition with pictures like this. If this were a person or an animal, and they were looking to the left of the picture; I have to remember to put the subject on the right of my frame. Sometimes, I looking at so many other things in my viewfinder that I tend to forget that! Looking to make sure there are no distractions in the background; that my metering is right. So, just something to remember for next time…
I need to work on trying to get that branch out of the picture though. I think it is distracting, what do you think?!?!?
