Photography is less about what you’re capturing and more about how you’re capturing any moments. It doesn’t even matter what camera you’re using. Whether you use a camera phone, a point and shoot, or a DSLR, a good photographer knows the basic rules of composition and when to use them. To be great photographers you should know when to break the rules to create unique and interesting photographs.

In this article we try to explain some basics rules of photography to capture best moments.

Framing your Shooting Object:
As you’re capturing special moments look for natural ways to frame your main subject. Tree branches, buildings, fences and people all make wonderful frames. Get creative and even use frames within frames to add visual interest to your photos.

Make subject in centre of the frame:
One of the most common mistakes for new photographers is to place your subject in the dead center of the frame. The best way to overcome this mistake, Imagine that your shot is divided into nine equal rectangles. Place your subject at any of the four points where the rectangles join to each other. By applying this rule, you’ll almost immediately add balance and interest to your photos.

Keep Horizons Straight:
If there is a horizontal line in your shot, be sure to keep that line straight and middle of the frame, not directly in the center of the image. The exception is when shooting a reflection. In this case having the horizon in the center can work well because it creates equal elements at top and bottom. A tilted shot does not make for a more creative image.

Actually, the only rule in photography is that there are no rules. While we covered discuss basic photography rules today that can be applied to almost any situation, that doesn’t mean that you can’t break the rules to create incredibly beautiful images.  Start applying these rules and you’ll be amazed at how universal most of them are.
