Digital Photography Tips and Tricks: I needed a shot of a nasturtium flower for a project, so taking my own digital photography tip I shot and shot and had about 50 nasturtium flower shots to choose from. This photo was my choice and the lesson that can be taught from this photograph is that the most appealing pictures will not have the subject or subjects perfectly centered and framed in the photograph, placing your subject off center can help create interest. This nasturtium is not only off center it is almost half out of the frame. There are many elements that affect the balance and composition of a photo besides the position and framing of the subject. The dark colors frame the subject at the top and left site of the photo; having the bright flower partway out of the frame draws the viewers eye into the photograph and to the subject.
