Essential Rules of Basic photography Bella Nunez


  • Simplicity is when you declutter the background, zoom in tight to eliminate background "distractions", or change your angle so your subject remains the focus of the image.
  • Direction of attention: to the lady bug
  • Exposure: blurred out in the back, perfectly.
  • Focus: ladybug perfectly focused
  • Depth of field: shallow
  • Lighting: lighting perfectly not too bright nor too dark
  • Color: amazing colors


  • Create a sense of movement by adding active space (the area your subject is facing) and eliminating dead space (the area behind your subject).
  • Direction of attention: Toby taking the picture
  • Exposure: i think its perfect, its not over or underexposed
  • Focus: he is on focused
  • Depth of field: deep, not blurred in the background
  • Lighting: good, not too bright nor too dark
  • Color: didn't use color, looks great, background is what stands out


  • Frame your image with the subject off center it's more pleasing to the eye and appears more natural than placing the subject in the center.
  • Direction of attention: Jennifer is off to the side
  • Exposure: I think it's overexposed. it has shadows and she can barely open her eyes
  • Focus: Jennifer is on focus
  • Depth of field: shallow because the background is blurred out
  • Lighting: is a hard light, adding shadows
  • Color: strong colors not dark


  • Use architectural lines - walls, fences, roads, or any lines to lead the eye through the photograph and draw attention toward the main subject
  • Direction of attention: To bella sitting down
  • Exposure:
  • Focus: she is on focus but there's distraction in the background
  • Depth a field: Deep background on focus
  • Lighting: Harsh light
  • Color: multiple colors i see, i think it would be better is I used a black shirt because the colors are distracting
