10 Photo Composition Tips

Photo Composition Tips From Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry is a legend. Also, when it comes to photo composition, he’s a notorious rule-breaker. Here, Steve sits us down for a brief but impactfully frank chat about his favorite photo composition tips. They are about what you would expect: Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Patterns, Framing, and the like. But they are well illustrated and golly, they’re just beautiful examples of a followed rule. This is the kind of useful video content that the Internet needs more of. This is the sort that makes you smarter, that helps you see better and helps you take a better photograph. This is the opposite of cat videos.
