Photography Tips: Composition can be practised anywhere

You don't need a fancy location to practise and learn composition in photography. You can compose images anywhere you like and whilst you do that, you can be practising exposure, trying different length lenses, depth of field etc. Then when you're in a fantastic location you'll be ready to capture it perfectly instead of fiddling about with camera settings, wondering where to stand and which lens to use. You have to give up wanting to shoot amazing images for a while, but whilst you learn photography it's practise that makes perfect. Learn all those techniques and how to use them and brilliant images will become a by-product of using your camera. I promise! In this photography tip I'm going to show you how to practise your composition in a very boring and messy location. Hope you get inspired to give it a go.

Photography Composition finding the picture

Photography composition isn't a technical thing. It lives outside the camera in the world around us and through your eyes. The trick is to liberate the subject from it's surroundings into a pleasing composition. It's about learning to spot the picture. Some people can see compositions naturally and don't give it any thought, whilst others like myself, have to learn how to compose a photo by looking for and finding compositions that work as an image. And all the while you need to be considering light as well. Search our channel for our lighting videos for more on that. The boats I photograph in this video whilst explaining the thought process that goes into composing a photo are particularly interesting. click the video location to find them. I'm going to take you to the locations of two of my favourite images and talk you through my thoughts as a photographer when I looked for the image before composing and shooting the photo.
