9 Composition Tips Featuring Steve McCurry Photography

You can find just about anything online. There is an informative short video that demonstrates the excellent use of the fundamentals of composing a great image utilizing the work of Steve McCurry.

Watch the video below to see how McCurry uses:

The Rule of Thirds
Leading Lines
Diagonals
Framing
Figure to Ground
Fill the Frame
Center Dominant Eye
Patterns & Repetition and how Interrupting Patterns can create even more drama
Symmetry

 

Centering the dominant eye is something I wasn't familiar with but I certainly see how effective it can be. I also didn't know the term Figure to Ground but it explains what I find so attractive about images that have a strong contrast between the subject and the background.

Is there any tip that stood out for you?
