To Shoot Or Not To Shoot? Photo Composition Tips

Homeless man and his belongings, photo composition

As a photographer, I often see online photo streams of someone who has published twenty or more photos of the same subject in the same pose or photos that do not show anything of interest. These are the people who believe that if they are able to take a photograph of a subject, they should. The question ultimately is whether to shoot or not to shoot. After all, how many identical images do you need to share with the world of your pet cat or your cousin Gerry acting strange? If you take the time to consider your subject matter, photo composition and what you want to achieve from the shot, you will become a better photographer.
