I receive countless posts, comments, opinions and videos each day on Facebook, most of them I ignore.
I must admit I’m a bit tired of cute animals, babies and people telling me about things that they have done, that don’t interest me in the slightest.
When this little video popped up it was so simple and to the point that I could’t help but share it on Facebook and post it here.
It’s by Steve McCurry an American editorial photographer, best known for his 1984 National Geographic cover titled ‘Afghan Girl’.
The video is a simple explanation of his favourite 9 Photo composition tips. It uses some of his great shots and demonstrates graphically how they are achieved.
The Afghan girl, who was later identified to be Sharbat Gula, uses his seventh tip, Centre Dominant Eye, to great effect.
Of course if you aren’t interested in photography, it won’t interest you in the slightest.
