There are many, many ways to compose a compelling photograph. The Golden Ratio, however, is one of my favourite tools when I compose a photograph.
In my article How to Use the Golden Ratio to Improve your Photography for Apogee Photo Magazine I discuss the Golden Ratio as an element of design in photography and explain how it can be used when composing a photograph.
I also provide a series of examples where I have used the Golden Ratio and explain why I often favour it when composing an image over the more commonly used composition tool the Rule of Thirds.
If you’ve never used the Golden Ratio for your photography I highly recommend giving it a go. The perfect division of space that the ratio is so well known for amongst photographers, artists, and designers around the world can assist in creating impact in your photography.
