Essential Rules of Basic Photography Anderlee Gonzalez

Rule of Thrids

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.
The direction of attention are the bright colors of the flowers. The exposure was just perfect, there was no overexposed or underexposed areas in the pictures. The flowers were in sharp focus. The focus was on point and it fit perfectly to the surroundings. These pictures are taken in a low depth of field. The lighting is soft and brings attention to the flowers. The flowers grab the main attention because the colors stand out.

Simplicity

DECLUTTER THE BACKGROUND, ZOOM IN TIGHT TO ELIMINATE BACKGROUND "DISTRACTIONS", OR CHANGE YOUR ANGLE SO YOUR SUBJECT REMAINS THE FOCUS OF THE IMAGE.

The focus was perfect there was no distracting elements in the background. The pictures were taken in a low depth of field. The lighting was soft and grabs the attention to the bird. The colors make the bird stand out and is effective in color.

Leading Lines

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