The Name of the Game is to Fill the Frame. But....

The other presenters at the Maui Photo Festival have not arrived, so I took a walk on the beach outside the Hyatt Regency Maui, the festival center, and snapped this photo with my G10.

The photo illustrates a technique: The name of the game is to fill the frame. In other words, fill the frame with interesting stuff.

That said, dead space can be cool and very effective, too.

Just stuff to think about when you are composing a picture.

Explore the Light,

Looks beautiful!

We leave Tuesday morning and get there around 5 PM. The next day we're going on the Road to Hana, eating lunch, then taking a helicopter back. I sure hope it has doors! 0_o

Can't wait! Enjoy your free days!

I hope to make it to Maui again one year. Maybe it will be during one of your photo workshops. -John
