Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds is a technique that helps highlight the important part of the pictures. The photo is divided 9 sections and when the lines are perpendicular to each other that is where the eye looks at first. During the project I did not know that my camera had a grid line feature to show me the rule of thirds, so I had to imagine it or guess where it was for a while. Something else that was difficult was just finding the right scene or background. What helped was the freedom to go around and experiment with the pictures. At the beginning of the project I knew that the rule of thirds was a casual technique that wasn’t really needed. Now after taking photos I see how effective it is.
