The rule of thirds – again!

June 12, 2010

I wrote before of the concept of “the rule of thirds”. Put simply the concept is that an image which aligns important features with any of the lateral or vertical thirds will be more interesting and appear more striking than one that places the feature in the dead centre. And furthermore by aligning the feature with 2 of the thirds you can create an even more impactful image.

To show the concept in action I chose a few images from a great movie “The Man Who Wasn’t There” and applied a grid to show how the Director used the rule of thirds to make them more appealing.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out my original posts on the rule of thirds check them out!

Here is my first post about the concept: https://clearlypresentable.wordpress.com/2009/11/16/the-rule-of-thirds-what-it-is-how-to-do-it/

And here is my post on HOW to do it: https://clearlypresentable.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/the-rule-of-thirds-part-2-how-to-do-it/
