Rule of Thirds: This is a principle taught in graphic design and photography and is based on the theory that the eye goes naturally to a point about two-thirds up the page. Also, by visually dividing the image into thirds (either vertically or horizontally) you achieve the informal or asymmetric balance mentioned above. Although there are many ways a photograph can be composed effectively by basing it on the use of “thirds,” the most common example is the placement of the horizon line in landscape photography.
Your turn: Take pictures that use the rule of thirds. Use any combination of live models and existing objects. Take a selection of pictures and post the five best on your blog. Feel free to do any photoshop editing to your images before you post them.
