What makes a good photo? Part 1
I am always asked "What makes a good photo?"
Well this is subjective but I guess its something that has four key elements:
1. Composition (there are no hard fast rules these days, but you know when its right)
2. The subject is intruiging, interesting in an instant
3. You respond to emotionally (any emotion will do)
4. It holds your gaze & can be recalled from memory
There will always be things that are of no interest but that doesn't mean a picture cannot be recognised for its quality regardless. Here are two pictures, randomly chosen. Dear readers, I'm asking you "Are they good photos?"
Nothing more. I await your response & thoughts on the blog.
Remember, this is only Part 1, I may be playing devils advocate here but humour me.
