What’s it all about?

It all started… somewhere.

A photographer, a Flickr account, and a mathematical perspective on photography and composition.

Along came a group called Learn Composition by Example, administratorship and a need to breath life back into it. So the idea came to write a series of articles on principles of composition. The first of these – Composition principles: Leading lines – garnered attention and a handful of new group members.

The sense that the output was useful prompted looking further afield: how to make this competence with the structure of composition available to a wider audience? How to let people outside the Flickr community participate in the discussion.

A blog. It’s the only option.

So The Image Composer was born. Not a place to promote my own work, but somewhere to lay insights of photographic (and all visual) composition bare, for the world to partake.

I hope you find it useful.

    I just wanted to stop by and say well done. I feel this is a natural progressive step you needed to take. Most including myself can recognize well written articles and blogs and you have what it takes. I expect you will enjoy this long term.
