Portrait photography advanced, how to choose composition method?

Composition refers to the adjustment of shooting distance, Angle, position, light and shadow and color, so as to harmonize the characters and environmental elements in one picture as much as possible. For portrait photography, composition is to fully highlight the theme of the work through a variety of methods, to highlight the figure, to abandon some trivial secondary things, better convey the photographer's image information.

Common composition methods:

1. Golden section composition

The basic theory of golden section composition comes from the golden ratio -- 1:1.618, which is mainly used to express "harmony", such as in architecture, painting, costume design and other fields. Using the golden ratio in photography can make a photo feel more natural, comfortable and attractive to the viewer. There are many ways to express the golden section in photographic composition. The most commonly used compositions include "golden spiral" and "golden nine squares".

2. Three-point composition

The three-way composition is actually just a simplified version of the golden ratio, also known as the nine-grid composition, which we often see in the camera's built-in reference line. The composition can be divided into two kinds: horizontal and vertical. When shooting portrait, the picture is divided into three equal parts horizontally and vertically. The body of the figure can be placed on each dividing line, and the figure can be placed on one of the four intersection points, which can highlight the subject more clearly.

This picture is shot in the middle of the scene. The figure is placed on the intersection point on the right to make the picture comfortable and quiet. The shooting of the back figure removes the expression of the figure and makes the viewer more imaginative.

Three-point composition method is not only applicable to shooting large scenes, but also can be applied to shooting close-up and partial close-up of people. The visual center is placed on the intersection, and eyes are usually placed on the intersection when shooting close-up of people.
