Rules are there to be broken… When it comes to photography it is drilled into us that composition is everything and that in order to have the ‘perfect’ photograph you need to follow a set of ‘rules’. In wildlife photography, specifically, one of these rules is that you never want to cut up your subject by over cropping. Although in today’s blog, this is exactly what we have done. We have taken some of the best up close and personal shots that we could find, just in order to prove that sometimes breaking the rules can work in your favour.
Have you ever ‘broken the rules’ of composition and if so, has it worked out for you?
