Is EVERYTHING we do as photographers in terms of our studies and practice to create a photograph. Each thing that we do can be considered an ELEMENT of composition. How we each study and practice is as varied as each of us as photographers. Considering the variety of photographers and their studies and practice, the possibilities of composition are limitless.
Rules of composition are limited ideas of what a “good ” picture should be.
Think ELEMENTS of composition instead of RULES of composition.
