A few photography composition tips
- Train your mind to look beyond the obvious. Find shapes, lines, and repetition within a scene. Don’t accept the obvious first choice- seek a unique story.
- Compose your image taking into account your longest dimension. That way, when you crop, you’ll lose less resolution by only cropping from the short dimension.

- If you’re trying to determine whether to go symmetrical or asymmetrical with a photograph: hold your hand up vertically between your eyes. View the scene closing one eye and then the other. If both sides appear as a mirror image, you may want to consider going symmetrical.
