Rule Of Thirds

Now let’s get down with the Rule of Thirds.

This is one of the popular “rules” of photography,it is commonly used for an effective,balanced and dynamic composition.It’s called the rule of thirds because you divide the image into thirds using 2 imaginary,equally spaced,horizontal and vertical lines. These form a grid over the image indicating the ideal placement for objects.

As you can see the image has a grid over it,this is the rule of thirds wherein you imaginatively put a grid on your image to create good compositions.

The recommended placement of subjects are in those intersections,this is because a typical person doesn’t actually look at the  center of the picture but on those that are placed in the intersections.

here is the image without the gridlines.

I personally recommend you practicing this rule,for it is the most basic of all photography concepts. It is used together with composition to create good images.

Some Digital Cameras have an automatic grid lines in their screens this is good for those who are having a hard time imagining..^_^

If you have a pretty good composition you might want to share it with us!

Post it here!

I will definitely appreciate it.
