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 own 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
- Draws the viewer’s eye into the composition,
- 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
- Centred subjects convey more of a feeling of motion than centred ones.
Ask Yourself Two Important Questions
- Which vertical line should he/she is 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.
