Photograph is not just pressing the shutter button! Even if the “click clack smile and it’s in the box” often gives good results, it limits the possibilities of creative effects and is powerless in difficult situations (night, low light …).

We identify in our environment elements that orchestrate particularly well, and valid this composition that suits us by cutting through the camera. Depending on the scope of the lens, the sensor format, we are able to make different cuts. We walk, we look around that surrounds us as a framework to match the capabilities of our aircraft and is triggered when it coincides with items that catch our attention. For better fit, we approach, we go back, we change the lens if the camera allows, but the principle remains the same.

Rules, even if they are simple and well understood, become too restrictive when trying to apply a systematic way : for the family photo, you can forget about anything, because anyway these pictures have a very great interest to us! The composition is mainly important when you want the images to have an interest for the others : a well composed picture will attract the attention.
