Lesson 2 Composition

Composition - the ability to say "here is what I saw and here is what I thought was important".  That was a great way for Bill Fortney to explain the importance to proper composition to photography.  They key ideas to composition are: fill the frame, the suggestion of thirds, border control, and leading lines. Now to see if I can come up with an image to explain each of these!

Fill the Frame:  the definition is in the title!  but to elaborate, cut the noise, and the distraction and just have your subject be the entire image.  In this image, the subject is the cat's eyes.  One of the biggest mistakes photographers make (guilty) is having to much extra in the shot that is not necessary.
