Use Intersection Lines For Great Composure
Focus on the intersection of the vertical and horizontal lines. To make your image pleasing, place the subjects on the intersection of the lines. Your eyes will naturally go to one of the intersection points of the photo. Place the main subject on an intersection point to create balance, flow, and movement.
Balance Your Image
Balance is a rather vague term, but when you see an image that lacks balance it looks rather dull. A beautiful sky, mountains, and grass are all great features to a good picture. Balance creates the structure of the image.
Shape Structure. Creating balance requires looking at the picture in a simplistic view of shapes. By using triangles, rectangles, and squares you can create balance. Triangles are one of the most visually pleasing and easy ways to create balance.
Simplicity. As a photographer, we have to choose what we put in an image and simplicity creates a great photo. Often we want to capture too much and it can be confusing. We need to learn how to subtract the things we don’t need on the image. One of the easiest ways to create a simpler image is to frame your shot. Then look around the edges of the image for items that seem like they do not belong. Often, getting closer is a way to get a simpler shot.
3. Get the Horizon Straight
It seems easy to take a picture with a smartphone and get the horizon straight but many times it is easy to be off by a bit. What can you do when your image is almost straight? You can take the picture using the grid line feature on your phone. Also, you can edit the horizon after you have taken the shot.
