ROT – In photography – Rule Of Thirds.

The rule of thirds has been used by artists through the centuries and is probably the most recognized rule of composition. The rule of thirds states that the frame can be divided into three vertical sections and three horizontal sections. Wherever the separating lines connect is an ideal spot for a subject or point of interest. By positioning your main subject at any of the four intersection points, you are giving your subject more emphasis than if it is right in the middle of the photo. The intersection points can also work if there is more than one main subject in a photo. Proponents of this technique claim that aligning a photograph with these points creates more tension, energy, and interest in the photo than simply centering the feature would. Most famous photographs and paintings have the rule of thirds applied to them in some way or another.
