Confessions, musings and tips from a snap-happy wanderer.


Souvenir left by aliens.




The subject doesn’t have to be central…or big.


The subject of your photo doesn’t have to be dead centre or fill the entire frame.  In fact, it’s often far more interesting if it is doesn’t! Try putting it to one side of the frame, at the very top or very bottom of the photo – try different compositions. The Old Masters rarely put the focal point of their paintings smack-dab in the middle of the canvas. Use the sky, other buildings or the countryside to balance the picture.


But again…remember to focus on the subject and not the background!
