Rule of Thirds Assignment

I got a bit of an education on this topic back in my Delaware Camera days once I started really concentrating on composition using my SLR.

It’s one of those things one doesn’t really notice about photos until it’s pointed out. One might see a photo as being inherently better than another without knowing the reason why, and the Rule of Thirds can fill in the “why” in many cases.

It’s a bit like chess, where one of the main strategies is to fight for control of the center of the board, and not necessarily by just putting pieces there. A talented player will assert control indirectly, leaving the center squares empty.

And so, here, below, are some examples I’ve shot, either with my new DSLR or with my trusty old Canon Powershot (a point-and-shoot with surprisingly versatile features and control).
