Composition #1 – The Rule Of Thirds

Posted by Caz on Tuesday, 20th February 2007

Theory
Try to put the main point of interest in your picture at one of the intersections of the thirds.

Or devide the sky/land line on a 1/3rd 2/3rd ratio. Try to avoid putting the horizon half way down the picture.

Examples

[Over The Rainbow – horizon on the lower third, protruding flower is on the horizontal and vertical third intersection]

[Sunrise, Calanais – horizon on the lower third, sun is on the intersection of the horizontal and vertical third]

[Pienza Hillside – high horizon on the upper third]

[Pencils IV – point of focus on the left hand third, but half way up this time]
