Basic Exercises for Picture Composition
A few weeks ago in our blog we posted a contribution regarding the most common mistakes. Are you, too, often not really satisfied with your pictures? Do you get the feeling that your photos are somehow lacking harmony? The cause is usually a composition that has not been thought out: the composition of the individual elements in the picture is not strong enough. The linear composition does not stand out clearly.
But not to worry! These mistakes can easily be remedied with a little practice.
Take as many different pictures as possible in 20 minutes. Then you go home and look at the pictures on the computer. Which shots work best? Why do the others appear to be poor? Arrange your best pictures into a collage and print it out.
Once you've got your hand in with the lines, look for a new object, such as a bicycle or a car. Again using only one focal length, try to take as many expressive pictures as possible from different angles.
