Rule of Thirds is a principle of photography that involves the use of a grid with intersecting lines.
Let me use the examples of Fable, who visited me in the studio, to illustrate.
Now check out the photo below.
If you are someone who needs symmetry, you will not like this photo, because you will want the other arm of the settee to appear in it. In the case of this photo, I did not crop it down.
Sometimes when you have a new, nervous or fast-moving dog in a studio environment, you are not always guaranteed you will get every body part. I am always focused in on the eyes, the area between the eyes and the bridge of the nose.
In any case, Fable is a beautiful boy. Gotta love those expressive ears!
I am sure you will see many more examples in today's circle. There are again quite a number of participants. Sit back, relax and enjoy all the photos! Start here with Elayne Massaini, pet photographer in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Have a great weekend. I am guessing I would love to have Elayne's weather right about now.
