Do you have photography skills?

Are you an amateur photographer who wants to use different skills for each new pictures you want to take? Well, what I found out is that the professional photographer mainly use a skill that is called "The Rule of Third".This will help you improve your pictures. Some amateur have already started to use it, but for those of you who don't know, "The Rule of Third" is a type of skill that the professional photographer imagine when they take a picture. It could be that the camera already have The Rule of Third on its LCD (screen). The Rule of Third is something that suppose to have two vertical lines that is crossing over two horizontal lines.Rule of Third

The goal of this "Rule of Third" is to have the object on the sides or on the corners instead of the middle. It suppose to balance out your pictures, but sometime having an object in the middle can turn out to be nice.
I recommended every photographer to use this skill and you'll be glad that you did. I have tried it out and thought that it was very useful because it made my pictures looks different when it is taken in a different angle. Here is a video that could give you more information.

This is an interesting article, but I don't see the science connection. Our "Community Guidelines" state: Buzz Blog entries should relate to recently published science, or to current phenomena (leaves changing color, floods, animal migrations, etc.)

I see a potential science connection, but it is not made.
