Convert to Black and White

This picture breaks a few of the rules (rule of thirds and taken outside the golden hour)

I took this picture walking back to my car after going to the beach. The sun was high in the sky, I did take some ones that the composition was the rule of thirds but they just didn’t look right.

I use convert to grayscale on the Raw converter then dodge and burn tools to give more contrast.

The other thing I did was take the picture kneeling down, everyone can take pictures standing up, try taking some pictures from a different perspective and see what happens

So if you are out taking shots try these tips

  • Break the composition rules
  • Try converting to Black & White
  • If you haven’t used the dodge & burn tools, give them a try
  • Take some shots from different angles

If you have any tips that have helped your photography feel free to put them in the comments box also if you have any questions please let me know
