Some Thoughts on Composition


The Internet is full of rules on how to compose a photograph.
"10 Top Photography Composition Rules", "The 10 rules of photo composition", and "Compositional Rules" are only some examples that popped up on my screen. Whereas I think that these "rules" can be a useful guide for the beginner, I think that strictly following them (as suggested by the term "rule") can seriously impede your success in finding interesting angles, interconnections, and the true character of a picture. Therefore, I want to advocate to follow gut feelings more often, to try out different things without considering the rules, or said differently, to break the rules - at least sometimes!
