Red Wing In The Reeds (Breaking Composition Rules)

This is one of those series of images where personal taste and style take over . Wildlife photography, birds in particular, has a basic rule that the subject should be as close as possible. Fill the photograph if you can.

I don’t always agree. Many of my photographs have the subject further away and the surrounding environment just as prominent.

Composition rule of thirds ‘usually’ (not above) is used. I will crop a photo, then pull back until some type perspective is included.

The reeds here made it more interesting, gave a sense of where the bird was, and I even liked the rough texture here.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. The trick for me here was still keeping the subject as the focal point of the picture. And of course getting it in the first place 🙂
