The Rule of Thirds




The rule of thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in visual arts such as painting, photography and design.

The rule states that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.

Source: Wikipedia

In other words, instead of placing the subject you are shooting in the center, place it nearer to the corner of a photo (at one thirds from the side or corner of the photo), in theory the photo should look more interesting when this rule is followed.

Some Samples:

@ Tranced I was thinking of a unique and wide theme, then searched google to look for photography themes then I found this.

The photo I used is exactly the same one, came from wikipedia.

At first I thought you wanted 3 objects (rule of three).
This is something else, interesting.
