Bonus Composition - Rule of Thirds • Generally, don’t place the subject of your photo in the center of the print. • The viewers eye is drawn to objects at intersecting lines within the print. • Imagine a tic-tac-toe game board. Place that over your lens and compose.
How to use • Where is the center of interest? • Use f stops wisely • f/16 f/22 will show lots of depth • f/2.8 f/4 will show shallow depth of field
Types of lines • Lines can be divided into three groups. • Organic – lines found in nature • Manmade – lines made by humans and machines • Implied – invisible lines created by a person’s gaze. We look where they look.
