In this blog post, I will discuss the elements of art photography. It’s a popular genre for artists to explore and there are many different ways that you can approach it. In this post I’ll break down some of the key features that make up an art photo and how each one affects your final product.
The Rule of Thirds
The Rule of Thirds is a very important compositional rule that can also be considered a guideline. It dictates that you divide your image into 9 equal parts, both horizontally and vertically.
Leading lines are a way of drawing the eye to one of your chosen focal points in an image. They can be subtle or striking. Some common examples include leading from the bottom of the frame to a subject that is higher up, or vice versa. Leading lines can be created by trees, staircases, roads, railroad tracks and bodies of water. Busy cityscapes with lots of lines crisscrossing each other can also be very good for this technique.
Symmetry and Patterns
Symmetry and patterns can be found in both nature and art. Symmetry creates a comforting type of balance within an image. It provides a sense of calmness, serenity, or stability.
Patterns are designs that are made up of repeating shapes, lines or colors. They tend to send the viewer’s eye through the image in one clear direction. Patterns tend to be quite visually engaging.

Dutch angle photography is a technique that can be used to create some very interesting and unique images. The Dutch Angle was named after the Netherlands, where it gained popularity during World War II because of its ability to show how horrifying war really is. It’s also been called “dutching” or “compressing.” This post will teach you all about this technique so you can use it in your own photography!
What Is the Dutch Angle?
The Dutch angle is a type of camera angle that provides an unusual viewing perspective, as if the observer is ducking down to look up. It can also be used as a way to create some interest or tension in the photo.
How Is Dutch Angle Photography Used?
Dutch angle photography is typically used to give a strange, or tilted feel to the photograph. It aims for that feeling of viewing the scene from an unexpected perspective. It can be used to heighten the sense of unease or tension in a scene. It is often found in action shots, and horror movies where it aims for that feeling of being off balance.
To squeeze more into your frame, use a Dutch camera angle.
One of the most popular and common camera angles in photography is called a Dutch angle. It captures an interesting and distinctive angle by tilting the camera to one side, typically at about a 45-degree angle. This gives your photo a sense of motion and provides more of a show than just looking into the frame. A Dutch angle can be used to squeeze more into your frame or it can be used just for aesthetics.
A Dutch camera angle is most commonly used in portraits where they want to emphasize the person’s face, rather than their whole body. Utilizing this type … Read the rest
Photographing textures can be a difficult task. It requires patience, creativity, and an eye for detail. The first step to photographing textures is to find the texture you want to photograph. Use your eyes or go online to find images of what you are looking for if it is not readily available in your area. Once you have found the perfect texture, there are many different ways that you can take photographs of it depending on how artistic you want them to look or how much time you have available on your hands. This blog post will cover some tips for photographing textures as well as some examples that will help give inspiration when creating new projects!
What does texture mean in photography?
Most people know what a photo is, but not the technical aspects. A texture in photography can be anything from an object’s surface and color to its lighting or perspective – it varies depending on where you’re viewing your subject!
A good way for beginners to start understanding textures would involve images taken with different angles as well as colors; think about how they will change this time next year when compared against each other?
Imagine a world without texture. Things would be much simpler, wouldn’t they? Imagine living in an unchanging universe with no variety or change to speak of–it’s not very appealing is it!? The same goes for photography; we need our textures so that we can see what life really looks like outside these sterile boxes sometimes called “real-life.”
In fact, the dictionary defines ‘texture’ as follows: “the physical properties such as shape and size that give something its distinctive appearance”.

Radial balance is a technique used in photography that balances images by distributing the radial weight of the composition throughout. Radial balance can be achieved through symmetry, radial patterns, and radial design. In this blog post we will explore how to use radial design to achieve radial balance in your photos!
What Is Radial Balance?
Radial balance is a technique used to evaluate the position of your hands on a guitar. It’s often important for beginning players, as it helps them form good habits before they start picking up more difficult techniques in later lessons or practicing at home.
The radial balance comes from an imaginary line that extends through your right hand and out into space about 3 inches above the strings and parallel with them near their bridge (the part where you change pitches). The thumb should be perpendicular to this line. If not, adjust until there are two fingers under each string-thumb over top one finger–and try again!
Radial Composition in Art
Artists have been using radial compositions for centuries to create dynamic and exciting pieces of art. This often includes things like spirals, concentric circles or even mandalas which are all designed with various geometric shapes combined in a way that stimulates the eye while also creating an interesting focal point within a piece of artwork. The shape may be selected based on its association with some sort of energy such as growth and regeneration when circular designs were popular during periods after wars where so many people had died from illness related issues due to their weakened immune system because military hospitals lacked hygienic facilities at this time period.
The use of radial composition in art can best be described as the arrangement and organization of objects on a two-dimensional surface.
Radial compositions are often … Read the rest
