The key to taking great photographs is framing the shot. There are some tips and tricks that you can use that will help with this such as:
- The rule of thirds which is where the subject is on the guidelines of the square or on the intersections of the guidelines.
- For landscape photography the image will be much more interesting if there is something in the foreground which is called foreground interest. This is because it gives your eye a starting point which then leads to the rest of the photograph.
- Leading Lines, this is where there is something within the photograph that leads the eye through it. An example is a tree line that runs through the photograph.
- Finally not taking the same shot that everyone else has is what makes a great photograph as no one has seen it before. So for instance The Leaning Tower of Pisa has been shot so many times but the little family run pizzeria that all the locals sit outside hasn’t been so that would be a much more visually exciting shot for your audience.
