12 Days of Photo Tips - Day 7

Our 12 Days of Photo Tips are brought to you by KnK's very own Robin Gibbons.

What is your visual Focal point?
Do you ever ask yourself WHAT the point is to the scrapbook page your just finished? Or maybe you are more organized than I am and ask yourself that BEFORE you put the page together. A photo needs to have a point. A focal point. What is the point in your photograph that will naturally draw your eye? Place your focal point in a prominent position using your rule of thirds! You can also use the portrait setting on your camera to blur the background. Using contrasting colors is also a great way to enhance your focal point. You use contrasting colors on pages why not try it in a photograph?
