Question: “What is considered a good photograph?” or “How can I make a good photograph?

Photography is essentially a form of media for communication and self-expression. Photography has much in common with writing. In writing, we choose words and construct them to form sentences. In photography, we use visual elements (line, shape, patter, color, light, etc.) and then construct them with composition (one-third rule, line, perspective, focus, frame, etc.).

Writing is considered good writing when it is straight to the point and is highly understandable to its readers. Good writing is filled with interesting ideas and meaning, and they have proper grammar making them easy to read and understand.

Similar to good writing, good photography needs a certain subject and clear idea without any disruptive elements. A good photograph also has a well-organized composition of visual elements.

Essentially, a good photograph is a photograph that corresponds with our desired intentions. For example, if we want to create a mysterious and eerie atmosphere, a dark and shady photograph would be more suitable than brightly lit photographs. If we want our photographs to encourage change, like for example to encourage people to care about the environment, then our photographs need to be filled with the message of environment preservation and so on.
