Composition plays an important role in Indian photography..it is the act of composing the image in the viewfinder is a visual process of organizing the elements and individual details of a scene into a balanced and pleasing arrangement. What are the other important factors of good photography....
Photography is both an art and a craft. One can not deny the craft side. A photograph is an amalgam of the photographer s talent and equipment, as well as light, atmospherics, and of course, subject. All need to be present to some degree. The factors of a good photography is therefore an amalgamation of a number of factors like Camera, The subject, Lighting, Atmospherics and indeed the equipments.
hello Roop.. to me a Good composition, High technical quality, The right moment and An Interesting subject makes a good photograph. . It s often enough if a photo is technically good and the composition works. Of course the right moment and an interesting subject also play very important roles. On the other hand, sometimes bad technical quality can be forgiven for example because of a great composition and an exceptionally interesting subject. The list above is my opinion and I am sure it s not perfect. The matter can of course be observed also from other perspectives such as based on purpose of use.
Friends, u have mentioned all the points to be remembered while taking a shot. I would like to offer some tips in case of digital photography....Here is a short list of some common terms used in digital photography: 6 MP camera - A camera capable of shooting an image measuring six million pixels in size. Aperture - The opening behind the lens that permits light to travel to the camera s interior where the sensor is located. JPEG - The term used to describe a type of digital compression used for digital images. This particular compression ratio was fixed by the Joint Photo Experts Group to reduce the picture size. This reduction, however, results in considerable loss of picture quality. Digital zoom - The process of digitally enlarging a portion of the picture. This function is performed within the electronics of the digital camera without any physical adjustment of the lenses, and results in a loss of picture quality. Megapixels - A measurement of digital photo quality. A one-megapixel image is made up of one million pixels. Memory - The electronic storage space built into digital cameras for the purpose of storing pictures. Optical Zoom - As opposed to digital zoom, this is the process of changing the focal length and magnification of the lens physically, without altering the quality of the recorded digital image. Superior to digital zoom. Pixels - A contraction of the term Picture Element . It is the smallest element of a digital image, a single dot of light or ink. Pixel Count - The number of pixels that go into making each image. The higher the pixel count the more realistic an image is likely to appear. PPI - An acronym for pixels per inch , and is used to describe an element in picture quality. The higher the number of pixels displayed per inch, the better the picture will appear to the human eye and the less easily viewers will notice individual pixels. RAW/NEF - The uncompressed image as shot by a digital camera. Canon introduced the RAW picture format, while Nikon calls this format NEF. Sensor - The digital strip within the camera that converts incoming light into an electrical signal. It performs the role of re-useable negative within a digital camera. Shutter Speed - The duration for which the camera s aperture is opened, thereby allowing light to stream in. Longer shutter speeds leave the aperture open longer, letting more light in and resulting in more exposure. TIFF - An acronym for Tagged Image File Format . While there is no loss of information in this format, the resulting file sizes are also very large. White Balance - Human eyes compensate for lighting conditions with different colors of light. A digital camera, however, requires a reference point that represents white. It then calculates all other colors based upon this setting.

Having a good eye for photography is more than half the battle. You must have an innate ability to see the possibilities and then know how to capture it with whatever equipment you have at the moment. It helps to have a good lens lighting and interesting composition. Even inexpensive point & shoot cameras do very well in good lighting. If you don t blow up the photo to more than 8X10 or 10x12 you should be quite happy with the results.
