Rule of Thirds
This composition technique helps inform your viewer and tell the story of what you're shooting. Learning its power will drive you to look differently at how to position your subject in the frame of your lens or screen. And after watching this, you'll never watch tv or look at art the same way again.
Creating Intensity and Simplicity with Fill the Frame
If you need a headshot or wish you could get a picture of your kid (or anyone) that turns out to be more than "just a snapshot" you want to watch this video. You'll hear how to maintain image quality and will get ideas not only for positioning your subject in the frame, but also ideas for how to actually position your subject. Whether your subject is a face, a flower, or a plate of mozarella cheese sticks, these tips and tricks will bring drama to your images.
Using Lines and Framing to Add Interest
Don't make the same mistake I made for years. Hear how settling your viewer's eye starts with keeping horizons level and trees plumb. You'll also get ideas for framing your subject without printing and learn about built-in phone camera features that will help you along the way.

This video will help you understand what makes for a blurry background even without "portrait" mode. We talk how to make twinkle lights really twinkle and how to get that beautiful bokeh that will help your subject jump off the screen/page.
