This week for Project 52 week 2 Rule of thirds. Do you know what rule of thirds means? Most people don’t, so don’t feel bad if you didn’t.
The rule of thirds is applied by aligning a subject with the guidelines and their intersection points, placing the horizon on the top or bottom line, or allowing linear features in the image to flow from section to section.
A lot of people who go to take a picture instinctively put your subject in the center and take the image. This isn’t a bad thing. In fact like this example below I’ve placed my subject in the center, however, I provided a little more scenery to capture above his head.
One might argue that this may not fully be rule of 3rds. If I was to be completely technical I would have pulled in the crop from the top until his body and head were in the bottom 2/3’s of the diagram. I tried that route but I felt I lost too much of the tree that shaped him perfectly.
You know what’s great about art. You’re the artist and YOU decide.
This photography concept can be hard to accept for someone that likes symmetry.
Can you visualize the lines in the picture below?
Check your camera, it may have guides that can be turned on to help you create this technique. Don’t forget to break the rules once and awhile.
