Rule of Thirds
Well here's the skinny on most photography. This is the rule that most photographers go by and that is the rule of thirds. Since I am still a beginner it's kinda hard for me to get the hang of this rule, and I'll explain in a minute. When they tell you to use the rule of thirds they are talking about you not putting the main focus of your pictures in the center of your photograph(which is what I still keep doing). Supposedly when you use this technique you can add other elements to your pictures so that the viewers have more to look at. They tell you that if your going to break the rules then you need to learn them first. I personally think that if you put too many elements in your photo then you'll take away from the main focus of the picture(but then again that's why I'm a beginner and not a pro). So lets all practice this and see what all we come up with. Remember good luck and have fun.
