Improve your next composition with these five sure-fire tips:
- Place your focal point anywhere but the middle of the paper.
- Let one or more objects run off the edge of the paper.
- Shift your viewpoint so that you’re looking either up or down into the subject.
- Choose an unexpected focal point. For example, paint a floral still life but let the vase be the star.
- Get very close to your subject, letting it fill the entire paper.
