When Packaging was Really Awesome
Don't think we improved in design. This dinstinctive container is much cooler than our modern, uni-plastic, beverage enclosures.

The intentional use of triangles in photography is another composition tool to create strong and interesting photos. They are used to create stability and sometimes symmetry in your photo. And if you tilt your triangle you have added instant tension or a feeling of imbalance. Just like leading lines, triangles are also very useful to point the viewer’s eye to what you want them to see. The trick is to find these triangles. But don't worry if you do not conveniently live near a pyramid! The triangles in triangle composition are most of the time implied and not real. Think for example of a road disappearing into a vanishing point. The two corners of the road are the base of the triangle and the road's vanishing point is the apex. A diagonal line created by an arm or leg, or even a staircase's railing will also create a triangle. Other triangles are created by arranging three models (or subjects) into any type of triangular shape of your choice - tilted or not. They can even be upside down! Keep your eyes open also for diagonal lines, they often create triangles, It may seem strange at first to look for implied triangles to photograph but once you start looking for them, it will be difficult to unsee them.
