Catching up on photography and image composition

Spent some time reading about photography and image composition theory. Each and every site I’ve been at mentions the “Rule of Thirds“. I am getting tired of it already. :) There were, though, few other interesting things to read. Essay on Image Composition gave me few ideas, as did this page. There are few tips at Wild Things Photography, but nothing in-depth. Same thingshere, but in different words.

I’ve also came across an Apogee Photo Magazine which has a somewhat extensive collection of articles and columns on the subject of photography in general and composition in particular. Particularly interesting I’ve found articles by Michael Fulks (“Gestalt Theory and Photographic Composition“, “Composition… A Primer on Positive and Negative space.” parts 1 and 2, and “Does your left brain know what your right brain is doing?“). “First class photography” series by Willis T. Bird are also useful. It’s not that trivial to navigate through the site and archives and there is no sensible search facilities, so I’ll add links here for the future reference. Lessons: 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4, 3, 2.

And just to wrap it all up, here are a couple of sites about color theory.
