I recently watched an excellent video by photographer David Marx
at the Focus Photo School
. In the video Marx presents a great description of how composing your scene with one, two or three subjects changes the story the picture tells.
Notice how the two pictures below give a different feeling, depending on whether there is one horse and rider or two. See if you can describe the difference in a sentence to make it clear to yourself.
|One horse and jockey|
|Two horses and two jockeys|
