Create a “star of the show” in your Photos

Compositionally, its easy to keep your mind focused on a few simple steps.

  1. Should this image be horizontal or vertical (landscape or portrait)?
  2. What element of the scene is the “star of the show”?
  3. What element then become the supporting cast?
  4. What is the focus of the image (what seduced me to take this photo)?

  1. I love this photo because of the red and yellow…the red is more dramatic while the yellow leaves and white trunks enhance the red leaves.
