Rule of Thirds

The “Rule of Thirds” in many cases makes for a more appealing image. This rule segments your image into nine equal parts with two vertical and two horizontal lines as above. The idea behind the Rule of Thirds is that your subject occupies one of the four intersecting guidelines. This technique is said to create tension and interest within the composition. The Rule of Thirds can turn a center-weighted (mundane) image into an image with emotion and feeling.
Please note that the Rule of Thirds is only a guide and is not written in stone. It would soon become very boring if every photograph was processed with the Rule of Thirds. You should always use your own artistic eye and values to create images of interest.
