To improve your photography compositions, SIMPLIFY them!
Two colors — just black and red:
2. Single subject, direct eye contact
Something I learned from Steve McCurry:
When photographing a single person, try to get their eye directly in the center of the frame.
This is the “center eye” composition.
3. Get insanely close
4. Find a clean background, crouch, and wait for a single subject to enter the frame
5. Natural light, +2 overexpose (high key)
6. Just photograph hands
7. Hand gesture, curve, arabesque
