Amateur photographers are notorious for their instinct to center everything. Unfortunately centered pictures aren’t terribly dynamic or interesting.
Instead, learn to move your subject away from the middle of the frame. A simple way to frame a photograph in this way is to follow the rule of thirds. To do this, simply divide your frame up like a tic-tac-toe board and place your subject at any of the intersecting lines.
This may seem a bit awkward at first, but once you see the results you’ll wonder what you were thinking placing all of your subjects in the center.
