When it doubt leave it out

Helpful list from Scott Bourne, a leading photography blogger and educator, with the delightful reminder… when in doubt, leave it out. (Note, post edited in response to Mr. Bourne’s concern that I had quoted too much. No offense intended, I’m happy to use a non-infringing excerpt. It was truly the last item in the list that attracted my attention.)

1. Use negative space.
2. Avoid merges.
15. When it doubt leave it out.
