New Video Lesson – 5 Tips for Creating Stronger Images

By Dan

April 3, 2020

We photographers seem to have it easy. Whereas most artists spend anywhere from hours, to months to years to manufacture their creations, we can simply point, press and be done. However, that kind of convenience doesn’t necessarily translate into great imagery. 

Shooting powerful photos that have lasting visual appeal requires more than just pointing and clicking; it takes applying some fundamental compositional methods that are designed to simplify your compositions and actively engage your viewers.

This is the subject of my latest YouTube video lesson. In this short tutorial, titled 5 Tips for Composing More Powerful Photographs, I outline a few essential techniques that you can use to help you strengthen the visual impact of your imagery and craft photos that will connect with your viewers.

I hope you enjoy the lesson. If you do check it out, leave me a comment and give me your feedback.

I realize that hobbies like photography have taken a backseat for many people right now, but I believe that continuing to engage in our creative passions and immersing ourselves in learning can help alleviate the stress that we’re all feeling right now in this uncertain time.

So, while you probably won’t find it quite as entertaining as Chris Mann’s awesome My Corona video parody, you might learn something that you can use the next time you pick up the camera.

Stay safe and be well, everyone.

I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

You have done it again! Another triumph.

Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

Thank you, Dan.
