  2. You can certainly see your expertise within the paintings you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.

  3. Any composition tips for car photos?

      Harry, car photos aren’t really my forte, but the best ones I’ve seen are almost always macro or detail studies of a particular car feature. Compositions you would be looking for things like the “rule of thirds”, leading lines, framing, that sort of thing. The other tool which seems to be effective is to put the vehicle in context some how with it’s environment. A recognizable local icon viewed through the car window sort of thing. You can also use implied motion when the vehicle is in motion with a blur. Hope that helps :) Meg
