One thing that snappers often ask me is “when do you turn your images”?
There is no one answer, but it is almost certainly “more often than you do”. I turn my picture diagonally when:
- I think it makes a nice composition
- I want to turn diagonals into horizontals and verticals
- I simply want to fit more in
- I want to introduce a more dynamic feel
Here’s a few recent examples:
So while for the sake of your viewers’ stomachs I would not recommend you turn for every picture, I do think we could all do this a lot more than we do today. For that professional look.. or just to get everything into the picture. Which still gives it that professional look.
