In the world of photography, there are many things to make a good photo. Composition is one of the most determined factor. Composition is the way to arrange elements on picture, including line, shape, color, brightness and darkness. Have you ever heard the words “framing”? It sounds familiar. Framing is one of composition technique. Framing is a basic composition where we have to set the main subject or point of view (POI) on a proper position in order to be surrounded another element on picture. This technique will strengthen dimensional impression on picture so that later will be more interesting visually and attract people attention to see towards POI.
RULES OF THIRD
The picture above is an example of Rules of Third theory. This theory divides the photo area into 9 equal parts both vertically and horizontally. According to the concept, the placement of the most attractive POI is at one of the crossing points of the line, so that the whole picture will be more pleasant to see.
DEPTH OF FIELDS
This concept is utilizing wide aperture with the aim to isolate the POI and do the separation from the background. Automatically, the POI that is made sharp will be very eminent while the background is just a complement to the photo.
On this concept, line is able to strengthen the composition in photography and is very helpful in building perspectives, emphasizing the 3-dimensional impression and guiding the eyes to highlight the main focus.
BREAKING THE RULE
This concept represented that placing the POI in the middle of picture is a statement that we intentionally put them into the center of attention.
Here an example of editing a picture using Lightroom CC Mobile. Lightroom CC Mobile is an mobile application of photograph that can be download on Play store and Apple store.
With some composition of Light:
- Exposures +0.60

And some composition of Color:
