Comprehensive Composition Assistance for Photo Taking

Many people are interested in taking astonishing photos and sharing with others. Emerging high-tech hardware and software facilitate ubiquitousness and functionality of digital photography. Because composition matters in photography, researchers have leveraged some common composition techniques such as the rule of thirds, the triangle technique, and the perspective-related techniques, to assess the aesthetic quality of photos computationally.
Some researchers also attempted to manipulate the photos in order to improve the aesthetic quality. However, composition techniques developed by professionals are far more diverse than well-documented techniques can cover.  We leverage the vast under-explored innovations in photography for computational composition assistance. There is a lack of a holistic framework to capture important aspects of a given scene and help individuals by constructive clues to take a better shot in their adventure.

We propose a comprehensive framework …
