About This Group

The Rule of Thirds helps produce nicely balanced and easy on the eye photos. Also, as you have to position things relative to the edges of the frame it helps get rid of ’ tiny subject surrounded by vast empty space’ syndrome.

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. Proponents of the technique claim that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy and interest in the composition than simply centering the subject would. (
