The truth about the 10 Rules of Photography is that you don’t ALWAYS have to follow them. I have seen many beautiful images that break the rules completely. So why have I spent so much time going over them then? I had a wonderful professor in college, Thomas Daniel, that would always say “You have to know the rules before you can break them.” Take the time to get to know these rules that I have covered over the last 10 weeks and practice them. It will be evident why they are important and then you know when it is the appropraite time to break them.
