Artistic composition refers to how your subject and other elements of the scene are arranged. Composition is core to your photo — it is your photo’s story. Composition rules are guidelines for arranging the subjects and elements in the scene to coordinate with how our eyes and brains work to understand what is beauty. The thrill of composition is identifying how the additional elements in the scene can support your main subject to create a beautiful photo that tells a story.
You can access all the artistic composition rules on your iPhone from the Wise Camera app for real-time photography composition.
