Digital photography has brought a new, exciting aspect to composition and design. The instant feedback from a digital camera allows immediate appraisal and improvement, and the digital image editing tools make it possible to alter and enhance the design after the shutter has been pressed. This has had a profound effect on the way photographers take pictures. The ability to see the potential for a strong picture and then organize the graphic elements in an effective, compelling composition is a key skill needed in making photographs.
