COMPOSITION, WHITE BALANCE

My style of photography comes out through composition. Most of my images are minimalistic compositions with few subjects. As you can see in the pier image, the composition is simply a single pier from the bottom and a horizon line. The image is set off by extremely calm water and a small palette of colors. I look for leading lines and shapes in my scenes to draw attention to exactly where I want it. In some images, I will manipulate white balance to make scenes warmer than they are. Take your camera out and try this. Photograph the same scene on all white balance settings. Even though when photographing in RAW this can be changed, it’s a great creative exercise to see what your camera can do.
