Composition Intro Pt.2
There are a whole bunch of photo composition rules that the great and the good have come up with over the years - and they really work as a place to begin shooting photos you can be proud of.

One day I found some amazing, beautifully composed photos on a rubbish tip. I took them home and studied them, trying to see what it was that made them exciting.
Gradually I noticed a pattern of compositions. Some had foreground, some had something leading from one corner to another and so on so I arranged them into piles according to composition type..

This gave me a lot more knowledge about how to use the different tools, and what they do.
