Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

This week’s Photo Challenge is: Rule of Thirds. This is an important technique in photography. Imagine the photospace cut into thirds lengthwise and also vertically. Subjects placed in the right or left third, or the top or bottom third feel more dramatic when placed to one side. It highlights them in a different way. I must confess I don’t do this often. I’m usually photographing birds and other animals that won’t patiently wait while I adjust the focus box.

Sometimes I do have the time. Here are my answers to this week’s challenge.

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    I’d never heard of the rule of thirds…. that’s cool! My favorite has to be the butterfly one – so many in one photo 🙂

      Yeah, it explains why some photographers couldn’t center the picture properly, right? 😉 On the day I took the butterfly one, there were maybe 100 of them climbing over “Ice Plant.” They didn’t care that we were standing beside them. The butterflies really love that flower.
