Actually this kind of simple way of composition is also called "white space", that is to say, in addition to the theme, image elsewhere are "empty", which is no other unnecessary objects as a picture element, which naturally can make the picture highlights the theme! To note is that before the shooting, check the picture if there is a topic not related elements, if any, will be to find a way to move it out of the picture or as a whole will become a bit messy.
2.Shoot from a low Angle
Many people take photos are picked up the phone, so the general height is around the chest, of course, this is the most comfortable position, most people would do, but it is also the most ordinary way, want to let you out of the picture, the extraordinary that are from a different Angle breakthrough! A simple starting point for an Angle breakthrough is to shoot from a low Angle for three good reasons. First of all, your photo will be more interesting because it shows the world from a new Angle. Second, shoot from a low Angle and only show the sky in the background, which can eliminate unnecessary interference and make the theme more prominent. Third, shooting from low altitude can show more interesting details in the foreground. Low-angle shots are still available for landscape shots. Try to capture ripples and reflections in the landscape or water from below. Sometimes you even need to get down on your knees and even lie on the ground, looking for the ultimate low Angle!

See more photos, you will find that, if your images have a sense of "depth" in words will be more obvious, so, we must learn to create the feeling of depth, it helps to draw the audience's eyes to the scenario, it is particularly important in landscape photography. There are several ways to create depth in your photos. One of the most commonly used and useful is to use the "lead" in the screen. So what are these leads? For example, roads, roads, railways, rivers and fences are good leads. On the beach, the edges of the water or the ripples in the water are all elements you can use. These "leads" can be a great way to capture the attention of the audience and make your photos attractive! Another way to create depth is to try to capture something in the foreground, such as rocks, flowers, leaves, or other interesting things.
If you hard to contain foreground objects in your photos, taken from a low Angle, and then try to get the theme throughout the future, middle and background, look down upon this simple technique, it can make your photos more stereo! The third way to create depth is to make full use of frame composition, which is to use something in the foreground to build the scene. You can use an arch, a window frame, or a hanging branch as a frame. Framing allows the viewer's eyes to see distant objects through the frame. This is a good way to create a stronger sense of depth in your photos!
3.Learn to capture details
One of the biggest mistakes in photography is not getting close enough to the subject! You know, this is especially important when you're photographing an object with complex details. If you shoot from too far away, you may miss out on amazing details. A lot of times, a close-up of an object, its texture, or even its color, can bring your photos to life.
You didn't know that looking closely at the texture of flowers, leaves, and drops of water can actually brighten your eyes and give you a bit of excitement. For portrait photography, close - up capture of detail is also very applicable. Close-ups allow you to capture facial features and emotions. This will have a greater impact on your portraits. This is also true for pet photography, as close as possible and as low as possible.
However, in the process of shooting, it is important to note that if the camera is too close to your subject; your phone camera will not be able to focus. To capture extreme close-ups of small details, you need an additional macro lens. The macro lens allows your camera to focus very closely on the subject. There are many different macro lenses in the market. You can buy your own macro lens as required. For like scenery photography, of course, are generally based on vision is given priority to, you may feel not use on macro photography, but you can try some close-up details contained in the future, it will make your pictures is more interesting and more sense of depth.

Silhouettes are usually shot in strong light, which can well show the outline of a person or thing and attract the eyes. So, how to take a wonderful silhouette picture with your cell phone? The first and most important thing is to find an interesting subject and shoot where there is light.
For better results, make sure your silhouette looks nice and dark. When shooting with the original camera, click set the focus and adjusts the exposure accordingly.

Sunrise and sunset silhouette photographs taken is the best choice, but not anyone can in the golden time, you can choose to "manual" silhouette, this time is to create a light source. If you're shooting indoors, keep your subject in front of a window or lamp to create a silhouette.
5. Good at shadow shooting
There is light there is shadow, both supplement each other, shooting all unconsciously to take part of the "light", ignoring the "shadow", a picture of the shadow can give you more often but increase the mystery. Shadows are often more interesting than the subject itself, creating a fantastic visual effect in the foreground of the scene and even acting as a lead, like the shadow of a tree in the upper left. As shown on the right, when the sun is low, the shadows are longest. So, in prime time, you can capture long shadows.
The exposure needs to be adjusted to make sure the shadows are dark enough. In a native camera, click to set the focus and slide down to adjust the exposure to make the shadow look beautiful and dark. If necessary, you can deepen the shadow in the postprocessing. Sometimes the shadow around us can also produce a very abstract effect, very interesting. Therefore, when we shoot shadows, we can first understand the theme in advance, and then we can consider including the subject and its shadow in the picture, perhaps it is a surprise!

Photographs taken with symmetrical shooting techniques can always be eye-catching, and will be picked up at a glance in the vast number of photos!
