The Rule of Thirds
I receive a prompt from Capture Your 365 (Katrina Kennedy) to give me ideas for my photo-a-day. Today, it was to compose my photo using the Rule of Thirds.
What is the Rule of Thirds you ask? Basically, it involves dividing your photo up into a grid, like a tic-tac-toe board and placing your focus on one of the 4 points where 2 lines meet or along one of the lines. It makes it easier on the eye to view and gives the photo more energy.
You can find more info on this principle here:
