Composition

The pleasing arrangement of the elements within a scene-the main subject, the foreground and background, and supporting subjects.

This is a simple word this week, but it so very important to a good shot.

Oh, love it! Thanks. Composition is one of those skills you can practice with any camera. I always tell people who are new to photography to practice composition before they make big investments in equipment.

I like the composition on this one. It's an angled version of the rule of thirds, with the bride's maids looking on in the reflection. Plus, the bride was self-conscious about her arms, so I strategically slimmed them SOOC - they just aren't entirely in the shot.
