SEVERAL SIMPLE RULES FOR GOOD PHOTO COMPOSITION Anyone can take good photographs with any camera. Good photographs have less to do with the equipment than the composition – It's not what you see but how you see it. Good photographic composition takes practice.
Have one strong center of interest, and place the subject slightly off center.
RULE OF THIRDS The Rule Of Thirds means: Divide your picture area into thirds, both vertically and horizontally. Place your center of interest at one of the four places where the lines intersect. Do NOT place subject IN the center square though. Have the subject look or move toward the center of the picture.
