35 Photography Composition Rules Beginners Have To Know

3. Know the Rule of Thirds

The so-called rule of thirds is an often-used guideline, not just in photography, but also in paintings, designs, and films.  The instruction suggests that an image is divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two evenly spaced vertical lines.

As such, the rule suggests the best place to put the subject of an image isn’t in the center, but slightly off to the side. The result is natural looking and well-balanced photos.

4. Keep The Interest
