I've recently rediscovered my weaknesses in utilizing both composition and story telling elements in my works. I've searched throughout the forums and have found some useful information on the subject matter, but I can only vaguely understand what I'm reading more than half of the time (except I'd like to say I can fully grasp the rule of thirds, but I may be wrong about that.)
So here I am making a new thread to ask anyone that would be generous enough to explain,show off a tutorial, or give me site so I can comprehend both composition and story telling elements more clearly. Also I would like some information about tangents ( I know it occurs when objects are so close together that they're basically 'kissing' one another thus making the piece seem flat, but does this also apply to elements which goes off the borders of the piece?) I really want to improve on my weaknesses and thank you to everyone who are willing to offer their help.
