The Importance of Composition in Photography

To achieve compelling and visually interesting photos, a photographer should consider their composition. Composition refers to the placement of the design elements and how they work together to achieve a particular effect. For example, certain design elements, such as lines, draw the viewers eye to a particular part of a photographic work. Other elements, such as areas of darkness or light , also serve to focus attention and highlight particular features of the photo.

When framing a shot, a photographer should take a careful look at composition to ensure that the desired effect and sense of balance are achieved.
