Perfect Composition - Great photos speak of great things and sometimes those great things are enhanced by the composition of the subject.
Tim Cooper, in easy to understand English, teaches you how to transform your images in photos that can resemble the work of top notch pro photographers. With a few simple rules (some of which can be broken), your images will be taken to the next level. And, by using the basics of photography - shutter speed, aperture and focal length, images that used to be run-of-the-mill, will start "singing".
