Geometry in compositions
Triangles:
This one is pretty simple. You should arrange your compositions in triangles whenever that works. Triangles appear to be more dynamic than rectangles or circles and so people see them as more visually exciting and appealing. Point-down triangles appear more top-heavy and so can add some to the appearance of "wrongness" in a surrealistic composition, and point-up triangles appear more stable and so appear more visually appealing in a more conventional composition.
Numbers:
Probably for the same reason, odd numbers appear more visually appealing in a composition, although you can shoot four people in a composition and make it look more appealing if you arrange them in a triangle shape.
Lines and curves:
Serpentine shapes almost always seem more visually appealing than straight lines too, so if you have straight lines, have a good reason for them, like using them as leading lines. The most visually appealing

"I think the hardest part of all
Is trying to justify self-deprecation
When I am constantly surrounded by sources of love and affection.

I know that I'm not on my own
But I can't shake the feeling that I'm in this alone.
There's no one that I feel safe with."


Went out to my favorite spot in the state the other day for a little birthday hike with the girlfriend. We finished the trail for the first time, and this little spot has always caught my eye. Finally walked away with a shot of it that I am, for the most part, proud of. Slowly getting back into the photography thing and I didn't think I missed it quite so much. Feels like a purpose again. Feels good. If anyone wants a print of this, shoot me a note. It would surely look stunning on metal. :D

Patience
I've been writing my thoughts down
To clear my mind
To try and figure out my brain
To confront and set aside my pain
And I've been searching for meaning
In a blood red field of
Wasted dreams and wasted breath
Baby, wasted dreams, that's worse than death


Hey. Check it out. I did a thing. Finally. Took this one with the new piece of gear, the 10-18mm. Surprisingly nice build quality on it for being so cheap. Not a major leap up from the kit lenses, but a noticeable improvement. Reasonably sharp, ridiculously wide, and quick, nearly silent auto focus. I can dig that. Lightroom was being a twat and showed all of the photos I took tonight as corrupt, so I was about to delete them and call it a loss until I threw them in Photoshop as a last ditch effort to revive them, which worked, much to my surprise. Camera RAW loaded them up with no problems. Thinking it's about time to finally buy the adobe CC subscription. Ugh. More financial responsibilities. But I guess I'm rambling at this point. I'm still fucking sick, I think. Sore throat and stuffiness. Could be allergies, but I've never had allergies like this before, if that's the case. Oh well. I like how this turned out. Hope y'all are doing well. :iconfsjalplz:

Fairly certain that I forgot to mention that I now have my driver's license. I had to pay my parents $450 last night to cover half of my insurance costs, so I figured while I was broke as fuck, I'd pull the trigger on some new gear. Canon 10-18mm F/4.5-5.6 and Canon 50mm F/1.8 STM incoming. Expect photos soon. Hopefully.

Yup, 2100+ messages. Haven't checked dA in a while. Or 500px. Or Instagram. Been busy with work and when I'm not working, I've been obsessing over Forza, trying to catch up with my brother's progress. I'm also sick again. Another cold + pinkeye this time. So. Yeah. Fuck me. Not dead. Just. Yeah. Not good.

But I'll survive and hopefully knock out some of those messages tomorrow before work.
Edit: No longer going to work, going to the doc for antibiotics instead of infecting everyone I work with/everyone that shops at my store :dummy: burned through about half of my notifications and I'll hit the rest of them tomorrow since I'm also off then. Made my Friday and Sunday shifts 8 hours to make up for losing 6 hours today, so that should be funnnn. Onto 500px!
P1 Cleaner Than Your Church Shoes
Imma muhfuckin' starboi. :iconmanfaceplz:

This is what happens when I don't go out with my camera for a month and a half. I'm probably gonna scrap this soon. Not sure why Photoshop cropped it from tru4k down to this arbitrary bullshit, but yeah. This was actually just a layer mask from an orton effect I added to the color version. Thought the b&w version looked pretty lit though.

Okay, hi

My name is Nick. I'm 18 years old and addicted to caffeine and music.
I started taking photos in October of 2012, and seriously pursuing Photography and learning proper technique about a year later, after my mom got her Canon T3i as a Mother's Day gift. Since then, the passion has been ever-growing and I've recently started a photography business selling prints of my work.

If you want to get to know me, learn how I work on my photos, talk music or photography gear, or just need someone to talk to (I'm here for you!), send me a note asking for my Skype.

Want to support me? Donate to my paypal: npmorris98@gmail.com or consider making a purchase from my Etsy page. Don't want to spend money? Just share my Facebook page with your friends. Or don't. I'll still love you. :)
