Or compose a photo like this one by Zak Collins?

Tips from the Pros
Divide your screen
Divide the display into thirds, then put something in each third of the view finder. If thirds don't work, divide your screen in half and place the most important element off center.
Shoot in natural light
Photos are especially magical at dusk and dawn, but overcast days are also great for taking advantage of bright, diffused light.
Keep your camera ready
Keep your camera with you at all times and don't be afraid to keep clicking the button, even if your eye isn't in the view finder. Some of the most amazing photos are lucky shots taken from the hip.
That's right! That's William H. Macy holding a portrait created by our very own Shen. Shen was also featured in a new documentary called Bay Area Graffiti: The Early Years.
Catch up with Shen on Facebook and be sure to stop in the gallery to check out her new work.
Please join us this Friday, April 15th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to meet artist David Aiazzi and see his recent works. David was born in Florence, Italy and raised in Tuscany. He studied under painter and children's book illustrator, Stano Dusik, and at Bottega Migliorini, where he received his degree in Restorations of Paintings. David speaks Italian, English, Spanish and French, loves to travel and read. This local artist is fascinating to talk to so stop by, have a glass of wine and see his new creations.
