This weeks Photo Challenge, compose your subject off-center, obeying the Rule of Thirds. The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image.

The “Rule of Thirds” one of the first things that budding digital photographers learn about in classes on photography and rightly so as it is the basis for well balanced and interesting shots. I will say right up front however that rules are meant to be broken and ignoring this one doesn’t mean your images are necessarily unbalanced or uninteresting. However a wise person once told me that if you intend to break a rule you should always learn it first to make sure your breaking of it is all the more effective!

  1. Bravo. I like your photos. The rule-of-thirds is just that a rule. That;s it. The photographer should NOT be shackled by repressive rules especially as far as their work is concerned. Of course, learn the rules and then as you intimate learn to work around the rules to add a flair to your creativity. Thanks for sharing.
