9 Photo Composition Tips From Steve McCurry That Will Make Your Photos Look Better

If you’re looking to improve your photography skills then there’s no better person to teach you than Steve McCurry. The award-winning professional photographer is the man behind the famous “Afghan Girl” photograph (which appeared on the cover of National Geographic back in 1984), and these awesome photo composition tips will show you how to take stunning pictures of your own.

The videos are made by The Cooperative Of Photography and they deal with everything about photography composition – from the rule of thirds and leading lines to patterns and repetition and natural framing devices. McCurry’s simple but effective photography tips are easy to follow but difficult to master, but as the photographer notes, “Remember, the composition in photography art is important, but also rules are meant to be broken. So the main point is to enjoy yourself while you’re photographing and take beautiful photos in your own way and your own style.”

As a professional photographer I have to say I think these are all great. And not just for photographers, but all forms of art.
