Rule of Thirds Rule of thirds divides the frame into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The points where the vertical and horizontal lines cross are aesthetically pleasing spots to place subjects or to have perspective lines converge. It is usually best to avoid placing horizon lines exactly in the middle of a frame, but to place the horizon either above or below center, approximately one-third or two-thirds up the height of the frame.

Checklist • Camera • Battery • Tape • Firewire Cable • RCA Cable • Check List- part of planning your video shoot is making sure you have everything you're going to need (cables, lights, microphone, video tape, tripod, camera, shot list, etc.). • Test all equipment before you get out in the field. Better to replace a dead battery before you leave for a shoot, than have to cancel the shoot when you get there.
