Composition - The Spirit of the Photo

Composition is the spirit of the photo. Composition results in the work of art that starts from inspiration. Inspiration begins when you free the spirit to experience the universe around you and disconnect with the internal struggles of everyday life. Experiencing nature and truly being in the moment links you with all around you.

It may seem like meditation, but knowledge of your surroundings without hindrance of thoughts that are outside clears the mind and sharpening your senses. Pictures seem where you didn't see them before. The components begin to art and align emerges.

Joseph Cornell in his book 'Listening to Nature How to Deepen Your Awareness of Nature' had this exercise. Walk into an area which you'd like to photograph. Instead of shooting and setting up the camera. Sit down. Wait. Relax. Be still and feel the second. Quite gently become aware of nature. The Native Americans called this 'silent hunting'. Nature will speak to you, but you have to be quiet. Nature talks softly. Nature will reveal herself to you, in case you are patient. And unbelievable pictures will appear.

There are lots of times that I've entered the woods with camera in hand and not found anything that I wanted to photograph. It could be that I wasn't prepared or nature didn't want to show herself. That day maybe she didn't feel photogenic. Other days, scenes appear as if by magic. So do not be disappointed if you can not find anything to shoot on any specified day. Use that time to scout the area for future chances and revel in the truth that you've got a chance to be outdoors.

Take this as a chance to plan for future shots. At these times believe, what if the light was coming from an alternate way. A better image may be produced by coming back in the early morning or late day. Seasons change the landscape. Maybe shooting together with the foliage in brilliant colours, in the fall, or winter with a fresh layer of snow would create the photo that you would like.

When seeking that image, don't rush yourself. Time with nature is a pleasure all by its own self. The absolute delight of being one with the outdoors is worth the experience should you not find anything to shoot.

Composition - Ten Recommendations And Techniques for Amazing Results

Composition doesn't come naturally to many photographers. Some say that composition may not although the technical aspects might be learned relatively easily. Photography is an art form and does need some natural ability, although I really don't believe this to be completely true.

So what can I do, my composition stinks? Composition is subjective so there will always be someone out there who enjoys regardless of how poor you may think it's, you work. Most non-photographers are not that discerning but to capture actually wonderful photos composition is key. A well composed photograph merely works, it's rather clear-cut but it is more a feeling than conforming to a group of rules.

Here are some composition tricks to remember next time you go out to shoot. Keep them at hand and see if they work for you.

1. A painter picks what to include in a painting, a photographer must choose what to exclude. Mess makeups by discerning framing removing unneeded parts. Use your legs, walk about looking for alternative compositions and utilize the cameras zoom to control what you need to include and more importantly, exclude.

2. The 'rule of thirds' is a compositional practice that is famous but does not necessarily need to be strictly adhered to. The rule orders the primary components which make up the image should fall on or near fantastic vertical or flat thirds.

3. Assess your horizon. For me the horizon should only ever be totally horizontal. Make use of the top of the window in the view finder as a reference. I frequently point the camera downward to align the horizon before re-composing.

4. Do not leave empty spaces that are large. Leaving large holes in the composition for example uninteresting sweeps of water or dark or very bright components should be prevented. By shortening the tripod legs to compress large gaps in the mid to near foreground, alter standpoint. Conversely elements shouldn't be littered, lift the height of the camera to boost the space between components.

5. Take a walk before settling on three or two compositions to shoot. Take time to refine them instead of shooting anything and everything.

6. Make the foreground and background fascinating.

7. Use leading lines such as movement or stone formations in water to lead the eye into the frame.

8. Check the edges of the frame for absolutely any distracting elements (half a tree, breaks in clouds etc.), and recompose if necessary. Make sure you have the ability to focus the audience's focus to the subject and try not to distract them away from it unnecessarily. Ask yourself, 'what's this image about?'

9. Make an effort to keep compositions balanced to some amount where possible. A protruding headland eliminate it or building can upset the equilibrium and try to find an alternative composition.

10. Practice, critically reviewing your own work and looking at just how other photographers compose their pictures. Check out this landscape photographer for a start.

Above all, love and get out there, exploration of composition is a constant learning curve.
