Photo Tip Tuesday// Week 6

As many of you may have noticed, a lot of my pictures have the subject off to the left or right a little.
This is called The Rule of Thirds.
Don’t worry, this isn’t some complicated thing that takes so much time and practice.
This is something that you may already be doing, but haven’t noticed what it is called.
If you have a newer camera, you may notice the grid on your LCD display.
It is divided into nine parts- three rows going across and three going down.
Well, put very simply, the Rule of Thirds is when your subject is off to the side, and

intersecting the lines on the grid.

Notice on the above picture, the subject is more in the middle.
On the one below, I have it off to the side.

 

Your subject doesn’t have to be perfectly intersecting the lines.
Trust me, mine aren’t!
Here are some other examples.

 

 

See, your subject doesn’t always have to be perfectly in the center.
Hope you have some fun trying this out!
