Rule of Thirds – Jacaranda & Pohutukawa trees

Beautiful Jacaranda in bloom with the white colonial house in the background.

The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image.

The Rule of Thirds is just a guideline, not a rule, and there will be times when it doesn’t work for you — when you want to minimize the background, or fill the frame with your subject.  Give it a try in your everyday shooting, though, and see if it doesn’t add a bit more life to your images.

Thank you to my friend, Bryce for contributing those shots.
