How to be a Better Photographer

Hello all! For my tip, I chose to discuss the rule of thirds. I use this rule all the time and it basically means this: divide your photo up into 9 sections and keep your subject on the lines. So you will have 3 vertical lines in your photo and 3 horizontal lines, therefore splitting the picture into thirds vertically and horizontally. Then you want to stay as close to the lines as possible.

As you can see with this photo, the subject is right along the right 1/3 of the frame, therefore upholding this rule. With the next photo you can see that is not the case.

However, the way she is looking is leaned towards the right side of the frame and is almost on the 1/3 line. All in all, this rule is more of a guideline. There is no magic rule that will make your picture better than another. I loved all the readings and videos and agree that your photos should tell a story. To end this post I’ll leave you with a quote. Marc Riboud, a famous french photographer, once said “Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
