Rule of Thirds Definition: The Rule of Thirds says that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally-spaced horizontal lines and two equally-spaced vertical lines, and that important elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections. People who use this technique say that aligning a subject with these points creates more tension, energy, and interest in the picture. Centering everything is BORING!!! 23. Rule of Thirds You can put the main object on the left, right or even upper or lower third.Horses in upper third. 24. Rule of ThirdsBoys in the left third AND the right third. Cool.Just remember: DONT CENTER EVERYTHING!!! Centering is boring.sBird in the lower thirdand the left third. 25. And Two More Things 1. ARRIVE EARLY TO LOOK FOR GOODPLACES TO STAND. BE PREPARED TO MOVE AROUND FOR DIFFERENT ANGLES. 2. ARRIVE EARLY SO THAT YOU CANCHECK YOUR CAMERA SETTINGS AND FIX ANY PROBLEMS. 26. Preparing for a Photography AssignmentPut the battery in the charger ahead of time!!!Check the batteries and be sure you are carrying a spare set.There is NOTHING worse than having your camera die! Lithium batteries last longer in cameras. 27. Preparing for a Photography Assignment Make sure the memory card is actually IN THE CAMERA!!!Dont Assume! Youll look like an idiot if its missing trust me, I know. 28. Preparing for a Photography AssignmentTalk to the person in charge to make sure you are OK to take pictures, and from where. 29. Last Words TAKE LOADS! You simply cannot take too many pictures. The more you take, the more we have to choose from.And you just might capture that perfect shot. 30. The Last, Last Word BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PHOTOS FROM THE CAMERA INTO THE RIGHT PLACE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! GET THEM OFF THE CAMERA TO FREE UP SPACE. LABEL THEM WHILE YOU STILL REMEMBER WHATS GOING ON.
