I have completed my tutorial series on basic composition this week, with the final three sections covering Light & Shadow, Negative Space and Separation. I had thought from the beginning that about 20 topics would cover the basic requirements. As I have worked through them I found a couple that could be combined resulting in 18 sections, making a little less work for me and I feel that as a basic tutorial, it is complete.
Composition is something that is very difficult to master but we can all strive to improve, after all you never become a 'finished' photographer. What I mean by that is that we never stop learning, we are like golfers, always striving for more, always reaching that bit further and occasionally making that hole in one, perhaps that is one of the greatest joys of photography.
At some point I might post a breakdown of some of my images pointing out the techniques used in each. If you follow the full series you will see the same images cropping up again and again, that's because they each utilise more than one aspect of composition (as you would expect) I did try to mix it up a bit with different images but ultimately every shot you post online is a shot stolen by some neerdowell and claimed as their own work.
You can find the whole composition series by clicking here or by finding it on the 'Tips & More' section of the site using the link provided or at anytime using the tabs above.
