If your subject is moving across your frame, leave more space in front of the subject, so that he/she/they appear to be moving into the picture, and not out. Think of it like this: the guy needs space to move into. Or imagine you’re the one who’s running. Would you like to have a stone wall a few inches in front of you?

If you just don’t get it, have a look at this version of the same picture.Figure running

See what I mean? All wrong, isn’t it.

About Paul

Retired, I spend my time on commissions for lyrics, writing words for singing. Choral works, congregational hymns, school songs - anything that allows people to sing together. Over one hundred published works and many broadcasts and CDs. An always-present liking for photography and pictures of all kinds was employed for a few years of freelancing and nearly 20 years of art-directing Kodak promotional print media.
