Framing for the Human Eye
The bus stop was generous enough to provide a framing guideline for me; thanks CTA !
camera: FujiFilm X-T10
lenses: Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 and Fujinon 18mm f/2/0
During my first couple of years of studying the art of photography, I came across an old photography book that had a chapter on composition. This was my introduction to the rule of thirds. For me, it was like a musician who played by ear learning note value for the first time. I realized that (at least some of the time) I was off-centering my subject automatically. Yet I continued to read and research this topic a bit more. Since, I've tried to consciously practice the rule of thirds while sometimes creating extreme negative space. For me, it makes the image a bit more interesting. Does it work all of the time...absolutely not! There is no one way to do everything. Rules are made to be broken. Yet I enjoy the challenge of going beyond my boundaries and taking chances. Isn't that the whole point of self expression?

Afraid of the light...
I am a street photographer using film and digital formats. I enjoy listening to good music, traveling, quiet time & peace.
