Tip 3 - Composition is King.
Being someone who shoots fashion & portraits a lot, I’m also very drawn to minimalism & architecture. I regularly look for leading lines, shapes, and negative space, as I'm planning my shot.
I usually want the lines of a building or structure to lead to the person I’m shooting. Doing so draws a viewer's eyes to your subject.
Including shapes, abstracted from buildings, the landscape, or a combination of both, can make for an interesting composition as well. Before I start shooting, I look at the location through my iPhone camera to see what it would look like.
