Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham
Photo tip of the day: Rule of Thirds
Imagine that your image is divided into 9 equal segments by 2 vertical and 2 horizontal lines (Like a Tic-Tac-Toe grid). The rule of thirds says that you should position the most important elements in your scene along these lines, or at the points where they intersect.
Doing so will add balance and interest to your photo. Some cameras even offer an option to superimpose a rule of thirds grid over the LCD screen, making it even easier to use.
Sometimes rules are broken as a part of the creative process or necessity and that’s O.K, too. You can be a rebel in your own way!
