  1. 1. The Rules of Photography Unit 57: Photography and Photographic Practice Terminology P1, P2, M1, M2 ADD YOUR NAME HERE
  2. 2. Rule of thirds • The rule of third a photography that is taken where the subject/object is off centre. Elements should be placed along the lines or their intersections • This creates more tension, energy and interest rather then simply centring the subject.
  3. 3. Examples of Rule of thirds
  4. 4. Framing • In photography, framing is a technique used to bring the focus to the subject. • This is done to make the subject stand out better. • There are many types of framing techniques. The two I found were natural framing which is when the items being photographed are used as internal frames. • There is also physical objects such as windows that create a frame for the subject being taken.
  5. 5. Leading Lines • This use of lines can be used to direct the viewers attention to he subject of the photograph. These lines can be straight, diagonal, wavy or any other creative variation. • Just be aware that they may also lead away from the photography subject.
  6. 6. Balancing Elements • Placing your main subject off-centre, as with the rule of thirds, creates a more interesting photo, but it can leave a void in the scene which can make it feel empty. • You should balance the "weight" of your subject by including another object of lesser importance to fill the space.
  7. 7. Symmetry & Patterns • Symmetry and Patterns can make for eye caching compositions, particularly where they are not expected. • Symmetry is both sides of the photo are parallel to each other. You can break symmetry or pattern by introducing tension and a focal point to the scene.
  8. 8. Depth of Field • Depth of Field is the distance in front of and behind a focus point that appears sharp in a photograph. • Depth of field can be used to make a subject stand out as the background of the photograph becomes more blurred.
