When it comes to composing your shots, photographers now have a couple of options: a viewfinder (optical/electronic/hybrid) or a rear LCD screen (most cameras feature both) – using your camera's LCD opens up possibilities, so that's what we're going to discuss today.
Often you will find that regardless of which method a photographer prefers, they are adamantly devoted to it.
For example, I’m sure you’ve encountered those who insist on using a camera with a viewfinder and grouse at the very thought of having to use an LCD to compose. There’s certainly nothing wrong with sticking to a tried and true approach, but it also doesn’t hurt to try something new.
If you’re a viewfinder loyalist, allow me to present to you 4 reasons that may sway you towards composing with your camera’s LCD a bit more often (just to be clear, I am not referring to a DSLR’s live view mode).
