A photograph is a way of capturing light to create an image. And it is how we choose to capture the light in the image that makes us photographers. The key secret to remember is that whilst the human eye sees selectively, the camera does not. You, as the photographer, are therefore the visual communicator. Depending on the purpose of your image and what it is you want to communicate, you need to choose what you want to include in your frame and how to present it. This will make it easier for the viewer to interpret and understand your image. This is composition – so be intentional with it! The focal point of your image is the part that captures attention, it is the anchor of the image’s composition. This is often the subject, but it may also be part of the overall scene that draws your eye to look towards the subject.
