Master Class: The keys to great composition by Bob Holmes
Sit down with AYP studios and photographer Bob Holmes for part two of the Marc Silber Show - Advancing Your Photography! He shares some remarkable photos from his latest trip to Cuba, and digs deep into the art of composition.
In order to capture this photograph below, Bob said it took 100 percent of his concentration for at least 30 minutes.
He loves looking for composition that grabs you and his unique tip is that you need to “get in the zone” and be fully responsible for everything in the frame. And the key to learning composition is to practice -- you can't become a great photographer in a week, but you will get there by shooting as much as you can.

And of course, thank you so much to Bob, for sitting down with us and our AYP friends to share all of his amazing advice and experience.
Most photographs need a punctuation point to give them interest. I loved the color of this butchers shop in Trinidad, Cuba but a straight shot of the shop didn’t do it for me. A dog looking hopefully for scraps of meat provided exactly the point of interest I was looking for. The perfect punctuation. #Cuba #nikon #nikonusa #NikonNoFilter #Trinidad #dog #butcher #shop #travelphotography #travelherenext #theglobewanderer #awesome_globepix
