sunday stills,: Rule of the third

Sunday Stills, the next Challenge: Back to Basics, the rule of thirds.
Posted in Sunday Stills, Sunday Stills Challenge of the Week, the next challenge with tags Sunday Stills on July 18, 2010 by Ed

For this challenge, I’m stepping back in , lets go back to the basics and use the rule of thirds which is to put your subject into the upper or lower part of the shat or in the left or right half of the pic. Composition is the name of the game here and you can use any subject you find…. Have fun…Ed

If Ed, when I was out walking on our new Mangere bridge, I remembered this challenge of the thirds, but I remembered only the upper part. Next time, I will try the left or right.

Meanwhile enjoy the historic moment as I walk across the brand new Mangere Bridge. This is the only time we are able to walk across.

Is the walk on this bridge open to public at a limited time?

As any good photographer can tell you the subject, unless macro should be in the top or bottom third of your viewfinder or the right or left third. so this weeks challenge is to use the rule of thirds. Any subject will do, just make sure it is either in the top or bottom or left or right of the picture.

Example: if shooting the sky have the horizon at the bottom of the pic, if shooting a horse pic have it off to the right or left with a pasture filling the screen. It just takes practice since we all tend to center the subject.
