There’s a great two-part blog post on the Ming Thein, Photographer blog that’s all about “seeing” compositions. The posts are wonderfully written and the images are intoxicating.
The first post asks the age-old question, “Can art be taught?” The question isn’t really answered in the post (and how can it be, really?), but the author points out ways that the art of photography can be honed.
I’m glad to see this because I am not a natural artist by any means. In fact, I am in some ways the opposite, a physicist by education and an actuary (yes, an actuary) by profession. I’ve taken an art class in my life….
Ugh, I’ve gone off track here. ..
But check out these blog posts. I think you’ll agree they make for great reading.

We've seen how managing the ISO setting allows you to control the amount of grain that shows in your photos. But it does more than that. Understanding and working with the ISO setting gives us added flexibility in terms of setting the other two exposure settings–aperture and shutter speed.
The bottom line is that ISO is an important and useful tool, and one that you will want to be comfortable with if you are looking to take creative control of your exposure.
