A Few Notes on Image Composition

When working with stock photography, you try to find the most appropriate picture for your project. When you're taking original photos for a project, there are a few ideas you can keep in mind that will make your work easier.

Planning the Project

At some point, every project has a layout. In some cases, the layout isn't finalized until the project is actually finished, but it's a better practice to work with a final concept in mind. If you work in an advertising agency, you're probably used to working from a sketch or preliminary design, a plan that has been approved by the client. If you are an artist, you might create as you go along, letting the image form itself as you work. The plan could be as simple as a quick scribble on a piece of paper (see Figure 15.1).
