This week I’m going to start a series of short posts here at Digital Photography School that are all about Breaking Photographic Rules.
Since starting this blog I’ve written about many rules of photography – but in almost every ‘rule post’ I’ve included some sort of disclaimer indicating that breaking the rule can lead to great results.
So over the next couple of weeks I want to look at 10 or so photography rules that are worth knowing – but which can also be fun and effective to break.
While you probably won’t want to break these rules in every photograph that you take – breaking them can bring about some fairly spectacular results.
Stay tuned for the first rule of photography to try breaking shortly (and feel free to nominate some of the rules you break in comments below).
