Composition: Revealing Rhythms in Repeating Objects

Using a series of repeating objects in a photo’s background can make it compositionally impressive. It gives the photo a rhythm—which you can then interrupt with a properly placed subject. And if you hide the end of the series of objects that form the rhythm, you make the photo feel endless. Your audience gets the feeling that the row of repeating objects never ends.

Composition: Seek Contrasts in Colors—Then Keep Going!

One very simple and effective way to emphasize your subject is to find a high-contrast background.

When a photo tells a story and uses several objects to tell it, that can be a lot for your audience to digest.
