11. EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS

Try placing your subject in different parts of the frame to see which one is strongest. Sometimes a perfectly centered image creates the most impact and other times placing them slightly off-center leaving negative space creates a more dynamic look. A great way to add drama is to direct your subject to look toward where the light is coming from. This will illuminate your subject’s face and create a more interesting dynamic composition.
