A few weeks ago, I was the guest photo host on the Naia in the Ha’apai islands of Tonga. We had some bad weather days. While the guests were thinking about what to do, I suggested an afternoon workshop on general composition and landscape photography. So we spent a few hours talking about the rules of thirds, lines of repetition, framing, and creating images from different points of view. I suggested, using a ladder to shoot down, or laying down and use a low or upward angle. As the boat was anchored and we had use of a zodiac, I took a few to the island to make some photographs.
Within minutes of being on the island people were laying in the sand and looking at things from different perspectives. It was a lot fun seeing people getting into photography.
