Rule of Thirds for Photographers

Rule of thirds is very important for creating your composition.

The rule of thirds is a compositional rule of thumb in photography. 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.

Simply try not to put your subject right in the center of your image because it will have less tension, energy and interest in the composition than when it is placed off-center.

Every rule can be broken but only if you do realise that you need to break it for some reason.

Some cameras already have a grid in the viewfinder that make it easier to compose an image.

If you set the focus point to the center, focus on your subject when it is right in the middle of the frame, and then recompose your frame to move the subject off center.
