Favorite Picture #1: This is one of my favorite pictures because of the blurry lights and the focus on the raindrops.
Favorite Picture #2: I love this photo because of the bright red color of the rose along with the dark trees in the background.
Favorite Picture #3: I also love this photo as the sunlight reflects off all the dark objects (and it has a story behind it, as my family and I were resting after a long walk around London, England).
Experimentation Picture #1: Experimenting with the sunlight
Experimentation Picture #2: Experimenting with leading lines

Rule of Thirds: The rule of thirds is when your main subject is on one of the third lines (if you were to divide up a picture into 9 segments).

Balancing Elements: Balancing Elements is when your subject is off-centre with an interesting background to fill in the blank space beside the subject.

Leading Lines: Leading Lines is when there are different lines within the photo, whether curvy, zigzag, straight, diagonal, etc. They can lead to a subject or destination.

Symmetry and Patterns: Symmetry and Patterns is when a photo has different shapes and patterns within it, creating eye-catching scenes. You can also take a picture breaking the shapes and patterns.

Viewpoint: Viewpoint is the different angles when taking a photo, like eye level, birds eye view, side view, etc.

Background: Background is when the background of the photo doesn’t overpower or detract the attention from the main subject.

Depth: Depth is taking a photo that can overlap or show different layers in the foreground, middle ground, and background, creating a more complex and depth picture.

Framing: Framing is when the backgrounds isolate the main focus, making the subject more distinct.

Cropping: Cropping is when you alter the photo by making sure the attention is focused on the main subject.

Experimentation: Experimentation is just trying new styles and composition rules in the photos you take. Experiment!
