SLR Lounge Constructive Critique Episode 12: Know the Photography Rules & Break Them

In this episode of SLR Lounge’s Constructive Critique, Pye talks about knowing your photography rules and knowing when to break them. There are times when you want to follow the Rule of Thirds and there are times when you don’t. There are even times when you do want to use the Dutch Angle. It is one of the great things about photography and art in general, if it makes the image look better, then by all means, break the rules.

Additionally, Pye also discusses timing the shot in liquid photography and sports photography.
