Simplicity• The Rule of Thirds• Lines• Balance• Framing

Woowo…what are they?

Simplicity (senang cerita, the object attract our eyes to only look at it..cewah)

Keeping things simple sometimes is the best way to get a good photo. Look for uncomplicated backgrounds and try to focus on keeping objects out of the picture that may draw attention away from your subject.

ini gambar yang diambil kawan saya…simple tak? hehe..

The rule of thirds

To discourage placing the subject at the center, or prevent a horizon from splitting the picture into two, the rule of thirds should be applied. This guideline is utilized by aligning a subject with the guide lines of a tic-tac-toe layout and the intersection points. You place the horizon on the top or bottom line, and/or allow linear features in the image flow from section to section.

The use of lines can be used to direct the viewers attention to the subject of your photograph. These lines can be straight, diagonal, wavy, or any other creative variation. Just be aware that they may also lead away from the photography subject.


i think this rule is very challenging..we can say it is up to the photographer to see and decide whether the image is balance or not.. basically the rule is to ensure the picture looks well in balance.. that’s all!

Balance tak ni? i like the movement effect of the car while others are static!

this one? is this ok? with tree and mosque..

Symmetry (studies i had done showed that sometimes people include this tip for the right composition..am i right?)

Keeping your subject symmetrical is another good technique to use in photography. You can also achieve amazing results by exploring interesting ways to show symmetry in your subject(s) or finding a break in the symmetry.

the same photo with lines…but i think it can be said as symmetry too


Framing is simply using other objects in your photograph to frame the main subject. This is probably one of the easier composition techniques in photography. Framing brings more depth to the picture and a better focus on what the main subject is.

jadi tak framing? ada pagar putih depan kuda ni.
