A place to think about composition in photography

Is Photographic Composition Absolute or Relative?

A good friend of mine mentioned that i should include pictures that did not work well as a comparison to those I thought did work.


This set me thinking……. there are “rules” of composition but are these:

  • Absolute – fixed unmovable points.  baselines from which you can all work
  • or
  • Relative – subjective and infinitely variable depending on the context in which they are viewed.

I’m curious to know what you think
