Classics : Rule of Thirds
Welcome to Week Forty-Four of p52.2 : Framed.
Our August topic is Classic Rules of Composition. The Rule of Thirds is a traditional guideline for composing an image which divides the canvas into nine equal parts. In composing your image, placing a point of interest on an intersection point which measures one third from the side edge of the canvas or from the top or bottom edges, results in a more visually interesting image than with an alternate placement.
Our year-long collaborative blog project is dedicated to composition and artistry. Please click HERE to read more about our project.
