How to Analyze Your Own Photography Compositions

Your own photos are the most important photos:

First, select a photo of yours that you like that you want to analyze:


  1. Invert the photo
  2. Add contrast
  3. Analyze the shapes, forms, directions.
  4. Draw your compositions and get a sense of the visual gist and dynamism behind it.

As simple as possible

Only analyze your compositions which you actually like!

For me, I’m curious:

A test of my sincerity of how much I like a certain photo I’ve shot is dependent on how much effort I’m willing to analyze it.
