This weekend my friend asked me to take a picture of them and I was trying to figure out how to best angle the shot with the background. I remembered that in class we discussed the rule of thirds so I decided to use it, and it made the picture better! Afterwards I looked more into it and found a guide on how to optimize the rule of thirds for different types of pictures and subjects, from portraits to architecture. I will definitely be using this to help take pictures in the future!
Also, this weekend I was looking at photos of different off-campus apartments and was surprised to see that almost all the pictures employed the rule of thirds!
