With this exercise we had to take two pictures; one utilIsing the rule of thirds and the other not.
#This first image is composed using the rule of thirds. I have positioned the subject off to the right of frame pointing inwards. By placing it there the image seems balanced, and the viewers eye has somewhere to travel within the frame.
# This second image could almost be classed as rule of thirds aswell, except that there is no room for the subject to ‘point’ into The lens of the camera in the picture is acting as a pointer and by placing it on the left hand side of frame and facing ‘out’ , it is closing down the space offered to the viewer. Overall, the framing is not as balanced and easy to look at as the above one.
