The Photo Phenomenon That is Julia Boggio

The truth is that the Boggio ultra-rapid ascendancy is based on hard work, careful planning, smart, proactive promotional strategies – and a little background assistance from Oprah, Richard and Judy. Julia and her Welsh, film-maker husband, James Derbyshire hit the TV news ‘big time’ five years ago when they scored millions of hits on YouTube with their version of Dirty Dancing, played out at their own wedding reception.

Master Composition Guide for Digital Photographers

Master Composition Guide for Digital PhotographersLearn How Composition Can Truly Make or Break Your Photographs

Good composition—or the effective arrangement of all of the visual elements that fall within the frame of the final image—is essential to the success of any photograph. When the placement of the various image elements are well-organized, the viewer is engaged in the image; without an effective composition, the eye wanders through the frame and the intended subject may even be diminished by distracting colors, shapes, or other pictorial elements.
