Here's 9 top photography composition rules for you to learn, shoot with then if you want to, break. 1. Fill The Frame / Cropping If your shot is in danger of losing impact due to a busy background/surroundings, crop in tight around your main point of focus, eliminating the background so all attention falls on your main subject.

This works particularly well with portraits when you're trying to capture something more intimate and focused or are shooting in a busy location where what's around them would just cause a distraction. Filling the frame could involve you capturing them from the waist up or for more impact, fill the frame with just their face. 2. Keep an eye on the edges of your frame to make sure the person/animal you're photographing hasn't had any of their body parts chopped off by it. 3.

The most basic of all photography rules is all about dividing your shot into nine equal sections by a set of vertical and horizontal lines. 4. So You Want to be a Photographer?

How to get a blurred background from your dSLR's kit lens. There are plenty of good reasons to put down your smartphone or point-and-shoot and buy a digital SLR. If, for you, it was because you drooled over food photography with a shallow depth of field or portraits where the subject is in sharp focus but the background is blurred, you may have immediately been disappointed by your shots and left wondering what you were doing wrong. The fact is the lens that comes with most dSLRs, aka the kit lens, isn't really your best option for achieving a shallow depth of field. Without getting into the technical details, cameras with large sensors, such as digital SLRs, are able to create more background blur than the much smaller sensors in an average point-and-shoot.
