Composition in Photography - The Rule of Thirds

Binny Jeshan
05 Jan 0 0

Composition is almost everything in Photography. Photography is all about how you presenting the scene you want to capture. Attention to it can often reward you with some striking images.
Composition in mainly how you are representing your content in the frame. It is a perfect balance of how well the subject and objects in your frame has been utilized.

Using the rule of thirds in photography helps a photographer to capture engaging and eye-catching photos. A well composed and clean image always attracts the person watching the image. It also tells a bit about the photographer who captured the photo. And to improve your compositions the rule of thirds technique is an essential thing to learn.

The idea is very simple and easy. All you have to do is to imagine a grid of six boxes in your camera’s viewfinder (like the one below). These grids consist of two horizontal lines intersecting two vertical lines. These lines should be equidistant from each other.


Identify the points where these four lines meet. This is the intersection points. All you have to do is to place the main subject that you want to highlight in the image close to one of the intersection points. This way you will be able to capture a well composed image using the rule of thirds.


Here is the grid lines which you will need to imagine on the viewfinder of your camera. In latest cameras there is an inbuilt grid to support you in capturing a well composed image using this rule.

Hope this lesson will be of great help to you.
