“Rules” can be stifling if taken to extremes. Break the rules today with focus, composition, etc, and see what happens.

 

Rule #2 The photographer’s shadow should never be in the picture

 

Rule #3: Never shoot through Venetian blinds

 

 

 

 

 

Rule #4 Never have the point of focus staring off out of the frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rule #5 There should always be a point of focus

 

Rule #6 Don’t clutter up your shots with too much visual information leading nowhere

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rule #6 Try to hold your camera still–quit dancing with your iPad!

  • Funny! Breaking the rules with focus and composition. I’m going to try that out as a practice. You’re a social genius.
