Composition - Part 3
Rules vs. Guidelines

Many of the so-called rules of composition should be considered as guidelines. They are based on recreating similarities in the make-up of many different images that many people have found to be esthetically-pleasing. These rules of composition or a design need not be taken as a hard and fast rule that must be observed.

Some renowned photographs violate all the rules of composition and are still excellent pictures. This doesn't mean that the rules are without value. They are time-proven, and provide great guidelines for photographers at any level. We use them all the time.

FOLLOW THE RULES UNTIL YOU KNOW WHEN TO BREAK THEM

By religiously observing the principles of composition, they will become firmly cemented in your mind. Employing them will become second nature to you.

Once you have the rules of composition down pat, experiment and break a rule here or there when you feel the image will work better without it. Thatís called individual style, and the creativity that stems from it produces some great images.

The point is that you will know when to break a rule of composition once you know what the rules are and how they work.

Congratulations
Linda & Jason

JUNE, 2012 - Best wishes to Linda and Jason, of Calgary, who returned home to Kelowna last month to join in matrimony among family and friends.
The historic Benvoulin Church provided a very quaint and intimate location for the small ceremony. What had been a wet weekend gave way to a small taste of sunshine – perhaps it was a blessing from above.
Linda's pet dogs joined the wedding party and got one of the first kisses from the beautiful bride while Jason waited his turn.

All Decked Out

Last month, I photographed a new addition to the imports offered by SunCountry Furniture in Kelowna for the idealic summer living in the Okanagan.

Photography options were limited as the deck was damp with fresh sealant, yet I was still able to place some remote flashes to blend with the sunlight.
