Composition Tip | Place Your Subject in Brightest Part of the Scene
One of my favorite compositional techniques for better photos is actually a very simple and intuitive concept. Simply place the subject of a photograph in the brightest part of the scene.
This works on any camera and for any genre, whether you’re shooting portraits or street photography. A viewer’s eyes are naturally drawn to the brightest area of an image, so placing the subject over that area creates a natural emphasis and highlight. Just find the light, and put your subject there! It’s so simple!
