About The Contest
Two of the newest books by Rocky Nook have sections about the importance of creating photographs that break traditional composition rules. Achieving a great photograph requires thought and preparation, an understanding of the photographic process, and a firm grasp of how light and composition affect a photo. There must be personal involvement and personal expression. There must be experimentation, with the recognition that only a small percentage of experiments end successfully.
