Composition is all about lining up elements around you into a pleasing arrangement in the camera's viewfinder. Many of you will have heard of rules of composition like the rule of thirds (http://www.photographycourses.biz/rule_of_thirds.html) or diagonals. But how on earth do you go about 'arranging' immovable things like trees, posts and the horizon into pleasing compositions?

Actually it's so easy you'll kick yourself. To remove something growing out of someone's head like a tree or post you just move the camera and yourself from from side to side or up or down - and sometimes it only takes a tiny tiny movement to completely recompose an image.

Composing pleasing photos is also about taking care with wonky horizons and uneven gaps around the camera's viewfinder. To change these elements you have to make small twisty movements also up and down or side to side.

Unfortunately there's no rule as to what works and what doesn't. You have to train yourself to bring your eye back from the subject of your image and look all around the picture in the viewfinder. Then ask yourself if it works best this way - or that?

Don't miss compose a photo part 2 where we'll show you how to put all this into practise.
