Rule Of Thirds

Rule Of Thirds can make the picture more Dynamic

Like all Visual Arts, there are many rules in photography for composition, and I believe that Rule Of Thirds is one of the most powerful one. These rules are often flexible, which means you can apply, modify, or even break them. It is always suggested to learn these rules and modify or break them to create your envisioned picture.

Rule of thirds is one of those rules which, most of the time, separate a novice from a seasoned photographer. An experienced photographer know when and how to modify or break the rule of thirds, whereas a newbie always sets the subject in the centre of the image.

In this article, I am going to show some example of common Rule Of thirds mistakes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Centre or Off Centre – Rule Of Thirds

First let’s see what is Rule of thirds. Wikipedia describe it as : “ The rule of thirds is a “rule of thumb” or guideline which applies to the process of composing visual images such as designs, films, paintings, and photographs. The guideline proposes that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections. Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply cantering the subject.

The below photographs demonstrate the application of the rule of thirds.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”20861″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”slideInRight” title=”Horizon On Centre”][vc_single_image image=”20862″ img_size=”600×400″ add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” onclick=”link_image” css_animation=”slideInRight” title=”Horizon On Rule Of Thirds”][vc_column_text]
