I have had a great many discussions on realism in renders, various lighting techniques etc, but something we rarely talk about is composition. What makes a render, or photo or any piece of art intriguing enough to call it art. I will not bore you with talking about rule of thirds, or golden ratio. Those things are important but instead of those things lets talk about what makes a picture stand out from the run of the mill.

There is no hard and fast rule on composition, i think that the make up of a render and how it is put together is part of the creative process. What kind of emotion are you trying to convey? What is the overall theme? How is it integrated into the frame? What lighting technique bests serves the overall composition? All of these things are just as important as character design, set layout, props etc.

These are the things i struggle with, there are times when i feel the composition is great and other times i fail miserable. Interestingly enough i succeed more on the first or second picture in a series and it goes downhill as i work with the same subject and set. Maybe its because i get too complacent on the subject if i do not make a drastic change. I have an idea, which culminates to a theme, and as that theme progresses the creative part of it goes down.

Camera angles and framing are important aspects for 3d art as well as how a picture is cropped, no matter if it is done in your engine of choice or in post work. Depth of field enters the picture too. Does this picture need depth of field, or not? How much? How little? Again this goes back to the creative aspect and the style of the artist.

Considering all aspects of a picture is important and something i have a hard time with because i am impatient. Looking for little details that make a picture bad is not my strong suit, i just go with the flow and never really take the time to make a choice about certain aspects of a picture. Am i creating good lines? Are there any tangents that break up the shapes? Is the subject cropped in an odd way? Is the light too bright? Not bright enough? Is the light angle too steep or shallow? Where is the light coming from?

So many things to consider when putting something together. I would like to hear your thoughts on the subject and maybe some inspiration will be had for all.
When passion takes over 3
I could tell she was enjoying herself immensely. A few moments later for the span of a heartbeat she stopped all motion and breathing, then a huge gasp escaped her lips and the convulsions that rippled thru her were so intense i thought she might hurt herself. I could see the muscles in her legs tense so hard. The look on her face of sweet agony. The convulsions breaking across her body with reckless chaos. Truly beautiful to behold.

Never in my life had a witnessed such abandon, i thought to myself again.....something must have changed...indeed.

I had never seen Andie act this way in all the years we worked together, i was still waiting for the punch line. It soon became evident this was no joke. Andie completely ignored me and with each picture of Bella she switched to her grunts and whimpers became more insistent. Soon the air was filled with the tinge of sweat, mingled with her sweet smelling perfume, and the slight vanilla scent of her hair. It was all i could do to compose myself thru this.

Something must have changed during her vacation, whatever it was this was all new and exciting.
