Rule of Thirds

Rule of Thirds

Saturday 14 October
Luminary Hotel - 8am - 2 Hours
One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. However you ignore it at your peril as it can make an average snap into something which is has tension and dynamism. In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

    I was there to get some shots of the sun going down behind the Sanibel Causeway Bridge. We, my wife and I, were talking to a friend there after the sun was down and all of a sudden these striking, almost fluorescent pink stripes appeared against the dark blue sky. And it only lasted a few minutes and then disappeared.

    I took my son to see an old friend because he wanted to play with wire wool and try and get some "cool" pictures. We also took some led masks with us too. Was an eventful night and I'm sure somewhere along the line will see the rest of the results here

    I live near the water. As I worked in my garden, this eagle landed near the water's edge. It stayed long enough for me to grab my good old Cannon Rebel and I was able to capture several images with my 200mm lens. The bird seemed to have no fear of me. I moved slowly peacefully towards it and I ended up about 25' away. I did not want to scare it, so I only captured a few images. When I had finished, the bird remained here for quite some time. It was an amazing experience. I did crop the image to
