At the first class, the instructor talked about the Rule of Thirds and filling the frame and crop with your camera (before the shot, not after). Way too much to include in this post and worthy of enrolling in a class just to see what can be done. For the second class, next week, we are to bring in some photos for critique. I looked through some of mine and thought that the photo below is a good one to show 'filling the frame' and diagonals and finding triangles. It was just by chance that I got a depth of field that I like. Whew!!!
I will let you know what the instructor and the class thought after the critique. I would appreciate any of your criticisms now, so that I am prepared for next week.
