    oh please, there are no rules for photography, unless if that is how you choose to take pictures.

    Follow strictly to the 'rules' and u end up stripping the soul of the subject/photo.

    I would say the scientific part of photography is all governed by rules, while there are some rules and some guidelines for the artistic/creativity part of photography. Also rules and guidelines are sometimes interchangeable.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    I love those tips, too. I understand the author has made a book out of them. The link seems to have changed, though:
