While we hear with some frequency how importand composition is in yielding an interesting image which holds your attention;we seldom give much time to the rules of composition which deal mainly with the "convering of mood" It is probably reasonable to say that a photograph which does not convey the photographers mood and reaction to a scene;is a photograph of no intrest and value.In defining mood it is not unreasonable to suggest that mood is a continuum ranging from great excitement to virtual dullness which has at its core a series of significant emotions. These might include;peace,solitude,lonliness, claustrifobia,anger,dismay excitement anticipation etc . While I have viewed examples of the methods of composition which clearly demonstrate some of tools which convey moods ;It would be interesting to hear how you convey mood in composing your images. The classic case of displaying lonliness for example is the placement of a very small but clearly identifyable subject ,probably a person or child ,at the cental point of a broad detailess area of the subject. references to existing literature please.
