We’ve all been told the same rules on how to crop and place objects in pictures, but we’ve also been told that these are only guidelines. I’m here to show you how to be a rebel and break the rules with new more intuitive rules.

I go through Balance Between Light And Dark, explaining how “weight” can affect where your eyes will rest in an image

then I explain Direction/The Story, a very interpretive and individual rule that will make any image composition YOUR composition, reflecting how you think and imagine.

For anyone curious: you can flip an image by going to “Image -> image rotation -> flip horizontally” in Photoshop. Any other questions, just ask
