Photographic Technique Challenge - Rule of Odds
- Posted May 4, 2012 by Larry Nelson Viewed 1154 times
THE RULE OF 3??S: Whenever possible frame your pictures with odd numbered objects. By far the most popular odd number is 3, but any odd number of objects (generally speaking) is better than even numbers. The reason for this is that it is harder for your brain to take in an image that is not symmetrical. Your eye has to move more throughout the image (from object to object) to take it all in. This translates into a ??more interesting? composition compared to one that your eye can take in quicker by dividing it in half or grouping even numbered of objects.
