Project 52- Week 2: Rule of Thirds

Welcome to week 2! We’ve had hints of sun!

This week we are concentrating on the ‘rule of thirds’. Rather than having the subject dead centre of the frame, you can use the rule of thirds to enhance your composition and make your photo more ‘visually pleasing’. Many cameras come with the grid on the lcd screen to help!  Another way to do it is in post processing when cropping, but like everything, it helps to get in right in camera first!

Our model here is Prince, the most camera loving cat I have ever had. He knows when he needs to work and if I point at a spot he’ll go there for me! This time was on an old hutch. I needed to position him and myself where I could use the rule of thirds but also not have a too distracting background. These are very minimally cropped, maybe only so that the eye is on the intersections of the grid! I usually like to have my subject on the left hand side of the frame but you work with what you have!  You can see here though how I feel left looks more ‘right’! IMG_0365

It helps that my eyes are drawn to Prince however he is placed 🙂

Next up on the large circle this week, we have Ashley Siemon Photography, serving the San Francisco Bay Area.

Hope you all have a lovely week!
