Hi Ernie, Alex168, what should be basics of good composition, i was mainly focussing on getting crisp pictures of the fireworks when they explode.
Are there any basics of good composition or its just plain creativity.
As phil described the first shot.. i was again focussing for the firework this time trying to fill it in the viewfinded by zooming in.. the tree gives a good composition here..
So would like to know is there any basics of good photo compostion, if there is a good tutorial on it, kindly let me know.
The most basic rule to composition is Rule of Thirds. This is where you take a frame for what you want to take a picture of and devise a grid of 3 high and 3 deep. Some camera's have this grid built into them either through Viewfinder or LCD Display.
It allows you to imagine where things will be placed in the picture. Most commonly, items look better off-center.
Something which is hard to explain but easy to understand once you see a few diagrams. I believe there's a few topics on this forum about Rule of Thirds and there are thousands of articles on the internet if you do a search on Google for rule of thirds.
Hope that helps
