Day 292- Rule of Thirds
Probably the most basic rule of composition in photography is the rule of thirds (imagine your photo divided into a 3X3 grid- objects should line up to one of those lines and/or intersections). I consciously and unconsciously use this rule when framing and/or cropping my photos, so I thought this challenge would be an easy one for me. Hmmmm- not so.
Our deck has just been stained, and I wanted to capture its new look. Of course it is already littered with leaves, which make a natural subject for my macro lens. This photo was so hard for me to frame using the rule of thirds- maybe one of the other rules of composition (triangle, golden ratio, golden spiral?) applies…
Here is a more easy to see example of the rule of thirds.
