Essential Rules of Basic Photography Juan Jose Loeza


Declutter the background, zoom in tight to eliminate background "distractions", or change your angle so your subject remains the focus of the image.

The photos stand out for them selves capturing the main part of the image. Each photo has their own type of exposure causing them all unique. The focus on the image stands out because of the bright colors next to the soft colors.

Rule of Thirds

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.

Rule of Thirds

This type of pictures stand out because of the soft color with the main focus is either in the right or left of the picture. Also the image mostly expose the main object with brighter light.

Rule of Thirds

The background of the object are not as much blurred as they supposed because of the different lighting they have and either vivid or dark colors.

Leading Lines

Use architectural lines - walls, fences, roads, or any lines to lead the eye through the photograph and draw attention toward the main subject.

The images cap the attention to the main character thanks to the background being blurred or either are collaborating with simplicity, and depending on the exposure of the portraits, they have more focus. In most of the pictures the Depth of Field is not as mark because of the Leading Lines that follows on to the main thing. Finally the colors and lighting demonstrate the picture with more feeling.
The attention of spacing cause the image to have mostly about one or two objects in a clear space, causing it to be the main object on the picture in focus with highlights and shadows. The Depth of Field is supper deep causing that color pop up, and lighting to be bright enough to the picture, and with the center frame.


Create a sense of movement by adding active space (the area your subject is facing) and eliminating dead space (the area behind your subject).
