Waterlooplein Photo Tips

Look for Strong colours on the market stalls such as the brightly coloured Dr Martens boots. These intense colours with a simple composition grab the viewers attention.
Repeating Patterns create a visual rhythm and is a simple but effective composition technique.
Humorous and unusual items are plentiful at this market. Remarkable and original images can be more popular than excellent but predictable shots.
