Week 6/52: Rule of Thirds

by Heidi Egerman February. 08, 2020 340 views

Although I use the rule of thirds often, it felt different for me this week. Maybe it was because I felt I needed to compose and shoot an image that represented this basic rule of composition. I will generally shoot an image and post-process it with the rule of thirds in mind. For this image, I composed the shot (in camera) to meet this week’s challenge. I do think it works as it should. For more information on the rule of thirds in photography scroll to the end of this post.

As I do each week, I've added a few extra images that I feature on the blog on my website. Each image uses the rule of thirds to draw your eye to the focal point of the image.

Rule of Thirds
In photography, the rule of thirds is a type of composition in which an image is divided evenly into thirds, both horizontally and vertically, and the subject of the image is placed at the intersection of those dividing lines, or along one of the lines itself.
