We are going to be talking about a lot of images throughout this course, and discussions of composition are sometimes a little different than how you might be used to discussing images. In a lot of cases we are going to be looking at images purely in terms of the shapes and forms within the image. If you are new to discussions of composition, this can be a little strange, because very often our discussions will completely ignore subject matter. And one to likes to think that one's intent and the emotional power of the subject is all that matters in an image, but unfortunately that's not true.
A poorly composed image of a really dramatic subject will still be a poorly composed, less-effective image. So if some of our image discussions seem a little clinical, understand that when discussing composition, that's often how it goes.
