Photo Composition on the Fly (So to Speak)

Here, framing lost out as the picture was taken in a hurry. Seconds later the fish squirmed free and the one shot is the memory. Not a terrible shot, but maybe the next fish will be framed better if all the factors line up just right. The reality is the person taking the photo has to get close enough, while maneuvering a watercraft, stay out of the way of the rod tip, stay steady in the wind, get the camera up and hope the pose comes together. The tat and blush of the fish is not a bad visual. The lighting was very harsh at the time. 

When taking outdoor photographs, I am lucky to be mindful of lighting, shadows, background distractions and framing. If the photo is taken in a hurry then who knows what the results will be. Here is a basic reminder on photo composition for novices like me and maybe some of you. Thank goodness for digital capabilities to see what adjustments may be needed if we are fortunate enough for a second chance.

    when shooting a candid/action image with most digital autofocus cameras…center focus shoot.

    if you get another shot great. if not you got your subject the first time.

    it helps to shoot a little wider as well. you can always crop at home.

    looks like you were having fun.
