Depth: You can create depth by including objects in the foreground, middle ground, background and also by overlapping.

Rule of Thirds

The ones one the left and top right are my favorite because it reminds me of special moments I had in this photo like a trip I took in Louisiana and a lunch date with my mom. The other one is I love seeing quotes and this one just popped out to me.


There are about a few careers you can take like commercial, fine arts, photojournalism and still photography. Commercial photography is creating pictures of subjects that include architecture, people, nature, etc. Some examples are portrait and fashion. Photojournalism is taking photographs for news coverage and they focus on work that tells stories about situations and events.
