The focus here is to utilize simple compositional elements when framing photographs with the goal of seeing different. The repetition of practice will train the eye in the art of seeing like a photographer.

As you begin to look through your viewfinder to capture your images in the rectangular space, you are choosing what to show and what not to show. These compositional ideas will help you think about your photograph before you click the shutter. Over time, they will become second nature and you will be training your eyes to see different. Single composition “rules” can be used to achieve an outcome or several can be combined together.
Start with focusing on one compositional element at a time for practice.
This presentation will be continued with additional ideas.
Being outside in nature, capturing the beauty that lives among us, on camera or in the mind's eye has healing powers. Having fun discovering new and interesting subjects from unique perspectives to unique lenses, photography is all about light. Natural light is a constant change creating photo challenges that are never-ending. I am on a photographic journey through life with people and places around me.
