Compositional Attitudes

I’ve been catching some flak about my attitude toward composition.

Some photographers believe that you should first learn and follow rules. I’m not one of those photographers, and I’m not alone.

There was a reply to Photographic Composition: Rules Versus Elements that prompted me to research what other photographers thought about rules of composition.

Here’s one  from a name you may recognize.

“There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” – Ansel Adams

Learn to use elements of composition, instead of rules, to create your photographs.
