What is the one third rule in photography?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 14 Jan 2010

The one third rule in photography says that you should keep the interesting element of the photo not in the centre but either in the left or right third.

For some reason this just looks good with a photograph. So if you are taking a photo of a tree in a field and the tree is the focal point, then you should have the tree either in the right or left part of the picture rather than right in the centre which is how most people would automatically shoot it.
