This will be a series of audio posts where I discuss the compositions of seven images from my very first one-man photography show at Kent State University in 1981. I’ll talk about what makes for a stronger image. How we read an image. How cropping your image is as important as when the image was captured.
Today, I talk about how we read an image. We naturally give every image a flow, a direction when we read it. Given this flow to every image, we need to consider if the placement of the subject to be enhanced by its placement based on how we read the image.
Here are two views of the same photograph. Which one do you like and why? My video will explain the reasons.
