Composition is one of the most critical element in photography. Composition is how a photographer arranges the visual elements within their image, frame.

Even in the digital world, composition remains the key to creating strong images. Composition is what guides our eye through an image and gives importance to the subject. It creates the story for the viewer and how we as photographers convey that message.

    Hey guys! My name is Dale Alford. I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, a graduate of Central High School and LSU. Photography has been a passion of mine since I was a teenager and I love a wide diversity of photography genres. To me, photography is a science and an art and combining those two can be very powerful. I'm always open to learning and trying out different ideas in order to not become stale and boring.

    Hope to see you, let's have some fun and learn together!

    I went to the lake hoping to see the migration of the white pelicans. From my standpoint, there were very few. However, there were other worthy birds swimming or flying by. I set my eye on this egret as he flew across the water toward where I was standing. I tried my best to catch it in flight. I knew I would lose sight of it because of the tree branches. Not one to miss an opportunity, I kept clicking after I noticed it above me and hearing rustling of the leaves. It wasn't until I got h

    After watching the amazing sunrise on the Summit of Haleakala Nation Park the beauty of the surrounding area revealed itself. The views were breathtaking and I did all I could to capture some of it. The camera used was a Fuji X-H2 using in-camera Provia Jpeg Film Simulation. Lens was the Sigma 18-50mm. The depth of colors and shadows really made this scene look almost unreal. I couldn't wait to pull it up on a larger screen. Maui is a beautiful place and this is only one of the many amazing si

    I'm a member of the Louisiana Photographic Society and the theme for the July photo competition was "Abandoned Property". While I was coming back from a sports photography workshop in VA, I found some abandoned business properties along the way. Some construction workers allowed me to take some photos outside but couldn't go inside because of the asbestos work being done. The original mill plant was built in 1916 and expanded in 1925 by the textile company Standard-Coosa-Thatcher. Taken:

    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
