To create a picture that is more interesting, you can focus on one object, but in the background there is an object to fill the space.
These lines affect the way you view an image, these lines may be zigzag, straight, or diagonal.
The viewpoint can completely change the message in a picture. Instead of just shooting from eye level, you can shoot from above, ground level, close up, or far away.
You create this depth by using the background objects.
Framing your photograph helps drive the viewers focus on what you want them to be looking at.
Symmetry and Patterns
Symmetry and patterns can be natural or man-made. This makes for a very eye-catching composition. It creates a strong focal point.
Making a small object larger, so that the viewer does not lose what he or she is suppose to look at in the picture.
Rule of Thirds
This rule is when your main subject is at least on one third, if you were to divide up a picture into 9 segments.
When you take many shots to be able find the perfect one. (trying new things)
You don’t want the background to distract the viewer’s attention, the focus should be on the main subject.
