Art school, however, will not teach you passion and drive. You must have both and mix them with your innate talent and hard work. You have to develop an intimate relationship with your profession to be able to maximize your potential.
You need to know who the focal point of the image will be, i.e. the main subject. Like the actor in a movie or stage play. Everyone knows who this is and the same goes for your photos. Based on this information you need to know where you will place the subject. In the centre or on a two thirds intersecting line. The subject will draw the eye of the viewer into the image and needs to be correctly placed.
Rather than simply shooting whatever happens to be there, take a proactive approach to arranging your subjects. Take charge and let the people you are taking pictures of know exactly what you want them to do. When you do this, you will find that your pictures will come out much better than if you just take a picture of whatever happens to be going on.

Also, feel free to ask for an one-on-one Bible Study.
