Part of my Online Photography Course that I am teaching covers Design Principles or in 'togs terms, Composure. You are either born with en eye for photography or you can be taught it using some basic design rules. I think the Rule of Thirds was something that I had come to me naturally as I always seemed to draw pictures or take photos using this method and never knew it was an art form in itself.
We are in week 3 now and I have done a whole batch of principles for the students to mull over and as a last addition to the gallery I shared with my students, I took a picture (with my iPhone, no less) of my sweet little, red shoes. Only I made them into a heart to rest on the sweet spot, in the Rule of Thirds.
There are several ways that the "Rule of Thirds" can be interpreted and here is another, but used on my card.
Mastering design rules can make creativity so much more WOW as opposed to MEH!
I used my fab Sizzix Big Shot to cut out that delicate flower die (I have no idea who makes that steel rule die, sorry), Mei Flowers for my little pearls and Tonic Studios for that coolio border punch that I shall probably take to my grave.
What else? Oh yeah, yesterdays bunch of quotes? Weren't they lovely. Your comments and emails were so touching and I'm glad you found an affinity with them too. Well, I found another quote today that I just loved IMMEDIATELY. I think all us big-girl cry babies can identify with this! Isn't it gorgeous?
