The Rule of Thirds is a basic concept in photography.  When composing a photo, the primary subject doesn’t necessarily have to be centered in the frame.  By dividing your frame into 3,6, or 9 quadrants, then placing your subject into one of those quadrants, off-center, interesting perspectives are achieved.  This Rule of Thirds Challenge comes from Nancy Merrill Photography.  Here’s my take on it:

    • I agree. It creates interest, focal points, horizon lines. Great technique! I’d like to see some of your shots. Didn’t know you were a shutterbug too! 😃

      • I am lol. I was afraid of post if them because some people might know it was me because I have a weird way of taking ohitigraphies sometimes. Standing there for so long. Taking pictures from the weird angles LOL. But thanks for mentioning that. I could upload a couple that I am okay with lol
