    Steve McCurry, an acknowledged genius behind the lens who has worked for National Geographic and who took the famous ’Afghan girl’ photo, knows them all. 

    Using examples of his own work, he demonstrates that, provided you stick to the fundamental principles of composition, you can take a beautiful shot easily enough.

    Here are 9 amazing pieces of his advice to help you significantly improve your camera skills.

    #7  Dominant eyes

    Place the right or left eye at the centre of the composition. This gives the impression that the subject’s eyes are following you.

    #8  Patterns and repetition
