petit lesson : centered vs off-center photography

No doubt about it – placing a subject off-center is more interesting. There simply isn’t any energy in the center. Once I placed the purple star flower off-center, to the right, the flower vase became alive, three-dimensional and more interesting.

Doing this with people is crucial as well. You want to place them slightly off-center and fill the remainder of the space with something beautiful & interesting…but not too distracting!
