Photographic composition moves your brain

Photographic compositionIt is a commonplace problem and the top priority of photography. When I talk about composition, I also integrate light, camera operation (aperture, shutter, depth of field, etc.), and application of techniques (double exposure, use of props, etc.)Enjoy learning while usingIt will not stay at a certain stage. Let’s talk about this lessonPoint composition

Application skills.

Have you ever used such dot composition?

Learning composition can be divided into such a process: looking more at beautiful pictures, summarizing experience from practice, and being able to show your own ideas without rigidly adhering to the form. Do you use the point composition well?

Point composition is reflected in size contrast:Skillfully use size contrast to guide the line of sight and focus on the center of the picture.

Point composition is reflected in light consumption:Wait for the light, measure the light of the main point, and darken the environment in the later curve.

Point composition is not a stack of techniques:Look for bright subjects from the environment, apply contrast colors, and highlight the subjects.

Therefore, the key point of point composition is to find a subject with large contrast with the size and color of the environment with the help of light and shadow, and to express a concise theme with a standardized composition.

Why use dot composition

Maybe you think this picture is good,There are real and virtual, but they are not very durable, lacking eye-catching points.

When you see aestheticism but can’t express it well, it’s perfect to take a picture with a black background close to the subject.

Whenever there are many and disorderly pictures like a large sea of flowers, a large forest, etc., they will be in disorder,Long focus big aperture shooting, no growth, this is really good?

Select a flower as the point composition, select a dark background, and combine with the curve darkening technique to capture the amazing picture.

How to apply point composition

1. Size comparison

The subject selected in the composition is a relatively isolated point, which can form a size contrast with the big environment. For example, the cat in front of the windowsill is just a small point between the houses; Or echo each other, such as falling flowers and swimming fish.

2. Comparison of similar objects

In the same environment, the repeated appearance of the same thing, such as moss and clover, can simplify the picture and highlight the contrast. At this time, as long as you find a grass and a flower, you can become the focus of the picture.

3. Reflection

Shooting the reflection of branches can find a clean picture from the complex environment; At this time, if you want to shoot small animals and insects that are easy to drown in the sky, such as birds and dragonflies, you can deepen the traces with the help of reflection composition, even small points can be photographed clearly.

4. Color contrast, cold and warm contrast

To make ordinary things taste and highlight the beauty of subtlety, we need to grasp the color, such as the contrast between dark and light colors, and the contrast between yellow, blue, cyan and other cool colors.

5. Light and shadow contrast

The position of light has always been emphasized. Backlight, backlight measurement and narrow light are three kinds of light commonly used to highlight the main body, which can darken the environment and brighten the main body.

6. Footprint of composition

The main body selected for point composition should be small enough, otherwise it cannot be compared in size. How to highlight the small main body is the key to consider; From the perspective of composition, the more attractive it is to place the subject on the edge of the picture, such as the lower left corner and the lower right corner

7. More vs. less, dynamic vs. static

If there is no reflection on the water surface, it will be monotonous. When there is no reflection, have you considered taking falling flowers, fallen leaves, water plants, review, etc. as carriers to capture fish and tadpoles.
