Picture Basic
Rule of Thirds


We are entering a new week of Picture Basic. This week we will be practicing the Rule of Thirds. Most of us learned the rule of thirds when we first picked up our camera. You simply place your subject in the left or right third of an image, leaving the other two thirds more open. This is one of the most pleasing composition techniques.  In my example image, the bird is on the right third. Try different compositions of thirds (right, left, top, bottom) and find one that is most pleasing to you.
