Hello ON1 Plus community and greetings from Chicago! Can we talk? Like many of you many of you, I was frustrated by the idea of composition for a long time. No matter how much I read or how deep I looked, I could never get an adequate explanation of how to do it right. “Place your subject off center and use leading lines” was about as deep as it went.

And so I went along my merry way, thinking I was doing the right thing…until I started shooting architecture by pointing my camera toward the sky. It was then that I realized that the “rule of thirds” was of no use to me and was nothing more than a cheat on good photographic design. Based on the emails and comments I’ve gotten from you, I’m betting that you’ve had similar frustrations. All that is about to change. These next two videos contain the keys to the kingdom of composition. I know you’ve heard that before but have a little faith! And keep in mind that we’re just scratching the surface here. There’s so much more! Watch them and let me know what you think.
