Why should you be clear about the subject? • You should be clear about the subject so you can be aware of what you are trying to capture in order to best compose the photograph. EX:
Why do you compose the entire frame, not just the subject? • You compose the entire frame and not just the subject because excess objects in the photo can be awkward and mess up the photo so you make the background clear of any obstructions to not distract from the subject.
Why use different camera angles? • When you take photographs you use different camera angles because dramatic effect and impact can be added to the photo if taken in an unusual angle.
Why should you strive for balance? • You should strive for balance because photos could be ruined or be poorly taken if it lacks balance such as having to much light and lacking contrast.
Why use lines when composing your compositions? • When composing your compositions you should use lines because they can lead to the main character of interest or add emphasis to your photograph.
