“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
― Karl Lagerfeld
“Rule of Thirds”
Most Photograph except the abstract have some kind of primary or secondary subject. Placement of this key subject in the frame is crucial to bring interest and attention to the photographs. There are several rules which can assist a photographer to place the subject in the frame in such a way that it justifies with the mood and feel of the photograph.
Rule of Thirds is one such rules on which almost every photographer can unanimously agree. Imagine and draw two horizontal and two vertical lines on the frame in such a way that it divides the frame on nine equal segments. The rule of thirds says that you should position the key element or the main subjects in your scene along these lines, or at the points where they intersect.
Photography is a form of art and art is not defined by the boundaries of laws and rules. Though the application of the rule of thirds will definitely add balance and interest to your pictures. Most of the digital cameras these days even offer an option to superimpose a virtual rule of thirds grid over the LCD screen or viewfinder, making it a lot easier to use.
