Look at the photo above. I place the main subject of the photo at the intersection of the rule of third lines. This is exactly what you should do in your photos!
What is the IMPORTANCE?
- The rule of thirds is a basic principle.
- That helps you to compose interesting
- And balanced shots. Using the rule of thirds

- Instead of just glancing at the centre.
- By placing the subject off centre, you also embrace
- More blank space. The rule of thirds is also helpful for.
- Highlighting an interesting background Off

Ask Yourself Two Important Questions
- Which vertical line should he/she be aligned with?
- Which horizontal line alignment, for the eyes, gives the most appealing look?
“It’s not really a rule. It’s more of a guideline or best practice,” photographer and designer Shawn Ingersoll says of the rule of thirds.
Advice on using the rule of thirds.
- Practice with your camera’s rule-of-thirds grid: “Turn it on so you can see what you’re doing as you’re doing it,” Plicanic suggests. “Eventually, you get a feel for it.”
- Take a rule-of-thirds field trip: “Go to a park or somewhere and try to take ten good pictures that follow the rule-of-thirds model,” says wedding photographer Anna Goellner. “The more you do it, the more it gets ingrained into your head.”
- Keep your eye on the eyes: “Choose where you want your point of focus to exist before you’re shooting. I’m always going for the eyes,” author and animal photographer Carl Davidson says.
