Knowingthe what, where and how of composition will put you ahead of your peers and help you create a dynamicimage every time.The best images are never taken by accident.

3. Choose the right focal point
It is essential when choosing a subject to place it on a focal point that will create interest in the image.This is the area that draws the eye of the viewer into the photograph.
