Directionality is a powerful tool when you think about composition. If your photo is a map, then you are the guide and it’s up to you to help the viewer decipher how to navigate it. One way to drive directionality home is by using the Dutch Tilt. It’s a classic technique and, while it can be overdone at times, it can have a huge impact on the way your viewers explore your photos.

Additionally, I work for Sony as the Alpha Team's Social & Content Strategist and am a member of Sony’s Artisans of Imagery program. I also contribute regularly to Photofocus, Lynda.com and a variety of other online and print publications.
Admittedly, I have [not-so] tiny obsessions with long-exposure photography, neutral density filters and fisheye lenses. Basically, my passion is helping others help themselves with their pursuits of photography.
