Rule of Thirds

The rule of thirds in photographyThe Rule of Thirds is perhaps the most well-known ‘rule’ of photographic composition.The “Rule of Thirds” one of the first things that budding 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!TASK 1.

  • Make sure you understand the concepts highlighted in red.
  • Use a thesaurus or dictionary to find other words that could replace the red words but remember to make sure the words fit with the text.



Read the information about ‘Rule of Thirds’ and summarize (using illustrations if you need) to demonstrate your understanding of how this rule will help you to make your photography better.
