Hello, universe! How’s it hanging?
So I‘ve mentioned this in one of our earlier articles. I just think it’s worth mentioning once again.
Most point-and-shoots come with a LCD screen with live view. This is great for composing your images. Turn on your grid and you will have an excellent guide to teach you the simple rule of third. You can always look up the simple rule of third on the internet. Learn more about it.
The grid also helps you to align your horizons so they’re perfectly balanced in our picture. You might not appreciate this now but it when you look back at your pictures from the day, pictures with balanced horizons sooth the eye and stand out in a huge array of thumbnails.
Don’t be afraid to zoom in. It’s always great to have your frame filled to the brim. Don ‘t leave out too much empty spaces because that would picture looking weird. Unless you have some plans to insert texts over your images, feel free to compose with an empty space.
That would sum it up for today. Enjoy your point-and-shoot, guys!
