• The rule of thirds helps you create more interesting compositions.• Imagine two horizontal and two vertical lines equally dividing your shot, then place subjects on the lines or where they intersect with each other.• Place your horizon on the top or bottom line to add emphasis to the ground or to the sky respectively.
In learning how to use the rule of thirds the mostimportant questions to be asking of yourself are: What are the points of interest in this shot? Where am I intentionally placing them?
