These are my ideas on taking better photographs. What do I do?
You go to all the trouble of taking your camera out of its bag, switching it on, changing the settings, aiming, and finally pressing the shutter button. WHY ???
Something interested you. Something caught your eye. What was it ? Once you have answered that question, try to make it the center of attention:
What's the subject? This is important when the key to enjoyment is its composition.
I stare at a photograph, and mentally trace where my eye automatically wanders. This creates a mass of "pencil lines" across the photograph. If there is a subject of real interest, there will be the majority of pencil lines over it.
If there are features leading in towards the subject, there will be lots of lines suddenly shooting off towards the subject.
However, if there is no real compositional subject, the plot of pencil lines will be random. Is this bad? Not if there is something other than composition to draw the eye. Such as colour!
