Ho-ho! Though I should begin by scrapping Rule vi : use of trees and shadow is a standard artistic device going back to man's first scenic pictures!

Steve, the 6th commandment says the subject 'shall not be clipped ' , framing it with tree and shadow is desirable . I get a lot of KAP shots where the compromise of placing the camera just ruins the view so I need to come back another day...wait for the light..wait for the wind and this is why it's a commandment: the clean KAP shot takes persitance and patience.

Food (or commandments) for thought, Bill. And most I would subscribe to. But I either have to live in violation of #'s V, IX, and X, or write my own (and we probably each SHOULD have our own). One of the things I enjoy about KAP is the uncontrolled compositions that one gets back after a flight. I like the angled horizon for producing what I strive for, which is a view I could not/would not get from "earth".

When I'm in a photo, I just call it a "self-portrait", though I agree this can be overdone!

And since I just purchased a GoPro Hero3 (after several months of using a borrowed Hero2, I can't abide by #X! I originally shied away from the very wide angle look, but now find that for certain subjects, it adds considerable interest.

Thanks for the post. I promise to come up with at least 3 to replace these in my own 10 Commandments!

Nothing wrong with the GoPro...but its not for me..it's up to you what makes a KAP shot work for you..commandments or otherwise!
