Title: Sound of Thirds

The core of western music is the triad of thirds. It just sounds good.

Assignment:  Hi creative Framers, our challenge this week is the “rule of thirds’. It is one of the first composition rules that new photographers learn to create interesting and balanced photos. And it is also a nice and calming challenge after the dreaded self portrait! The basic idea is to imagine dividing a photo into a grid of thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have nine blocks. This grid helps you to find the four important parts (the intersections of the lines) of the image that you should consider placing your subject as you frame your image. You can also use the lines of the grid themselves for placing your subject. Studies show that the viewer’s eye tends to go straight to one of the intersection points rather than the center of the photo. Using the rule of thirds makes your photo only look more balanced but helps the viewer to find it pleasing to look at it. Personal note: I don't actually like the rule of thirds so much! Like any "rule" in photography, use it merely as a guide, and trust your intuition. The rule of thirds will help you especially in the beginning of your photographic journey, to compose better, more balanced images. Think of this as your first tool in your toolbelt.
