composition: rule of thirds

I’ve gotten some requests to cover the subject of composition. Thanks for your input! And here goes…an initial post on composition. There are a lot of ways to compose a picture and make it look interesting. But there is something about the rule of thirds that draws my eyes to an image. I love pictures that use the rule of thirds. Ok, so here it is… An image can be divided into thirds horizontally as well as vertically. When the subject lies on one of those lines, it’s appealing or interesting to the eye, or something….it just looks good. :)  Check this out below.

If you have other questions or things that are or aren’t working for you, feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to see what’s working, what’s not working, and what you’re interested in learning! :)

    Can you upload a picture that does not fit in the ruel of thirds?

    Many Thanks,
