“I don’t know how to compose a shot.”
There are a bunch of ways to tackle composition, so we will explore this over the next few weeks. Today we will talk about the Rule of Thirds.
The Rule of Thirds is an old Photography Rule* that is to be used to enhance the visual appeal of your photo. If you imagine your viewfinder divided into nine sections, you will notice four spots where the lines intersect. The idea is to place your subject in one of those four spots rather than smack in the middle of the frame. When your subject moves from the center of the frame, you create visual interest- that is, your viewer’s eye will be drawn across the photograph, and in turn will see more details.
Try placing your subject in different spots- beyond the four intersections and see what you prefer.
*With all rules, rules were meant to be broken- sometimes it’s awesome to have a picture
