    Ansel Adams said these words: (remember them well).

    There are NO RULES.. for good photographs - There are only good photographs !!
















    Where is the focus point in most of these images ???

    Smack dab in the center !! that is "rule" #1 do not put anything in the exact center ! forget the rules. Learn to Create - GOOD PHOTOGRAPHS !!!

    Majik~
    WOW! Stunning photos. Thank you for posting them and your point is well-made about studying the professionals. I long to take that type of photograph such as the zebra shot or the caterpillar/leaf.

    Awesome and inspiring!

    Default Thanks Kristie - U make me 'misty' !!

    (chuckle) Hey !! study these images and find out first hand what each one has in common, so to speak, 'the focus point' ! dead center or very close !! Now you can do the same thing, just fill that viewfinder with detail focused on the very center of your viewfinder and you will soon become CONSISTENT in creating extremely stunning images.

    This is how you 'get inspiration' by looking at images 'better' than anything we have ever done. Now, go out and visualize it in a 'different way'... and 'create' !!

    I have seen on many photography forums these words: The rule of thirds !

    I have never read it or about it and I do not want to know what those words entail. I have my style, I like it. I am not going to let someone else's words change my feel or style - I like simple. Simple is easy to understand - FILL THE VIEWFINDER with Textured Detail and eveything will come out just fine !!

    I'm always glad to share the 'simplicity' of photography in a unique way for people (especially new bees) and others wanting to advance their expression in creativity !

    Technical knowledge will not make you a better photographer. Rather - understanding composition is the ONLY way to succeed, when you can CONSISTENTLY produce well composed images, then your on your way, to amasing a huge collection, OR, your on your way to making $$ w/ your hobby !! It can turn into an extremely lucrative business venture in many unexpected ways !!
