Composition is the language of elements captured in a frame. One element relies on the other to communicate where one leaves off and the other begins. Composition creates a perfect partnership in space. Even an untrained eye knows it when it sees it. Composition equals balance which includes being light and dark, heavy and smooth, classic and modern, bliss and strife… Composition is also a bridge or a mediator of subjects.

Composition is always in view and can be learned over time by standing back and observing all of  the many elements that are joined in a pan around. See the dance of elements and capture them with a click or a brush.
