Composition is a fun thing to experiment with in photography.

I generally place my subjects off-center in the frame – it’s become an automatic thing.

Sometimes I like to play with placing the subjects so far to one side that they are barely hanging in the frame.

Far off-centered can make for some strong images. Take this one, for example. I think it’s more visually interesting than if this cute little goat was placed smack dab in the center of the shot.

This Nubian doe lives at Triangle J Farms in Albany, Oregon. Her name is Bella. To see another photo of Bella with a couple of her goat girlfriends – in a photograph illustrating the use of odd numbers – click here.

  1. Julie of Triangle J Farm wrote on my Facebook link: “Bella is Due for her first baby in the coming weeks!”

  2. Julie also asked me if I needed another goat fix before all their kids are sold. Why yes, Julie, I just might! Baby goats are so frisky, cute and fun to photograph.
