7 Tips to Improve Composition


Here is an interesting article by photographer Ivor Rackham that discusses the basic elements of art that could be used to improve the composition and creativity of your photographs.

“All these elements often work best when contrasts are found within them: light and dark, complementary colors such as orange and blue, curved and straight lines, simple and complex shapes, small and large forms, positive and negative space, and rough and smooth textures.”

He wisely encourages students of photography to treat each element as a topic for a practice photoshoot. That will help you become aware of how the elements of art can impact the structure of photographs.
