Sometimes the difference between a good photograph and a great photograph is the composition. Composition deals with the placement of objects in the photograph within the frame of the image and believe it or not it makes a big difference where they fall.
When creating a composition, try to use the “Rule of Thirds.” The Rule of Thirds is a simple tool that helps you keep your subject of the photograph out of the center of the image. When shooting, imagine a 9 panel grid placed over your scene or better yet, turn on your cameras grid in the options. Place your subject in one of the intersection line points that make up the grid and you have incorporated the rule! Center compositions work in some situations but in most, utilizing the Rule of Thirds will win out. Next time you are watching a movie or looking in a magazine, see if you can see the rule being used!
