RULE OF THIRDS
- 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. We'll check out this video explaining how to use it and why you should. If your camera has a guidelines setting, turn it on. If not, imagine a grid with nine boxes that divide up the frame (tic-tac-toe). Try to position the main subject of your photo on the lines or where these lines intersect. Check out the links below for examples and more information.
