Take a walk through a museum and study the greats in either photography or painting. study the way they composed their works. Rarely do you see a straight forward composition…unless that is part of the message the artist wants to convey. Almost always, you will see that there is some kind of perspective…The main image draws the eyes of the onlooker to something else. Something that is relevant to the main theme.
So…perspective and composition are both keys to making a stunning photo. And, even with a point-and -shoot camera, these 2 factors will help produce better, more impressive photos . Don’t just stick a camera in somebodies face, look around…see whats in the background and compose. Also, before hitting the button, try to decide what you want to say with the picture…decide on a perspective.
