Learning Goal
- Students will be able to use composition to take photos that use the Rule of Thirds

The Rule of Thirds is another composition technique that can have a big impact on your photos. If your camera has a guidelines setting, turn it on. If not, imagine a grid with nine boxes that divide up the frame. Try to position the main subject of your photo where these lines intersect. Check out the link for examples and more information.

You might need to use focus lock, to focus on your subject, then recompose for the rule of thirds.

The Assignment:

- Take 25 new/original different Rule of Thirds pictures
