Last week, Aimee’s lesson was on The Rule of Thirds and beginning composition for photography.
Basically, the picture should be divided into thirds both horizontally and vertically, and the subject(s) of the photo should be on (not in between as I previously thought) those lines or at the intersection of two of them.
Hmm! Who knew?
Here are my practice shots.
Unfortunately, I woke up to hoar frost here this morning. Beautiful. Great for pictures. But I’m really ready for green!!
You can see that the first picture had objects on the vertical (left) and horizontal (bottom) lines.
I thought this picture had a couple of horizontal lines covered. This is the view behind my house, by the way.
And I think this picture is a good example of her lesson on how diagonal lines create interest and movement. The tree on the left is a diagonal and the tree line fading off into the distance is also a subtle diagonal line as the tree line is moving away from the camera.
Such cool tricks!! We are going skiing this week and I’m going to practice her spring vacation tips on taking pictures in bright light and holiday pictures.
