Decision Making Through the Viewfinder

When I teach composition my first priority is to encourage decisions on what may or may not work:

• Portrait or landscape format?

• What is the centre of interest?

• Where should the centre of interest be placed?

At the beginning it matters not whether it's right or wrong, as long as we get into the habit of considering the options we have. Certain elements of composition may be an intuitive thought process, but others won't be intuitive — you will somehow have to take underwater with you a mental 'label' as a prompt to consider it and make a choice either way.
