Week 2 - Rule of thirds
Photo to be submitted between Dec 1st- Dec 8th.
What is the Rule of Thirds?
The Rule of thirds is one of the most well known photography composition rules.
It’s a use of 2 vertical and 2 horizontal lines to produce a 3 by 3 grid of your image as you can see below. The trick now is when you place your subject within the grid that makes better compositions.
How to use it?
Simple line up the important part of your photo either at the intersections or along the lines. This will give your photo the balance it needs.
Like all rules in life, there are times to break it. But I’ll explore that another day.
All you need to do this week is take a photo of anything using the rule of thirds technique.
Challenge: So try it out.
Extra Credit to anyone who does both a before and after. 1 Photo of how they would have done it and one applying the rule of thirds.
Need Some Help!!
