Composition is Never Forced
Photographer and YouTuber Sean Tucker is offering up an insightful video taking a look at composition. Tucker goes beyond the usual ‘rules of composition,’ imploring you to follow your intuition when framing and capturing a photograph — not unlike our “F the Rule of Thirds Post“.
The 19-minute video, titled ‘Photography Composition: Thinking Beyond the Rules,’ steps outside the usual discussion of composition, opting instead to look at framing through a more inspired lens — one not bound by and ‘bullied’ by the ‘rules of thirds’ or even ‘leading lines.’ As is typical of Tucker’s videos, his words are carefully chosen and his lesson astutely crafted, so we’ll let him to do the talking and summarize the video through Tucker’s own words:
‘At the end of the day, photography is creativity before it is science.’
