Rule of Thirds

  • PDF

The rule of thirds is one of the most useful composition techniques in photography. It's an important concept to learn as it can be used in all types of photography to produce images which are more engaging and better balanced. Of course, rules should never be applied blindly, particularly in art, so you should think of it more as a handy "rule of thumb" rather than one that's set in stone. However, it will produce a pleasing photo more often than not, and is an excellent starting point for any composition.

Soft Focus Filter Substitute :
Method 1 -- For a quick "soft focus" filter, breathe on the front of the lens (or front filter). For a longer lasting effect take the lens off the camera, breathe on the rear lens element, and put back on the camera.

Method 2 -- Blow out a burning candle and place a UV filter over the smoke so it settles on the filter. It's pure carbon, lampblack so it can be easily removed with a tissue later.

Incident Light Meter -- Use a styrofoam coffee cup over your lens (note: styrofoam cups are different thicknesses, therefore you may wish to "calibrate" this approach using the f/16 rule on a clear sunny day). Stand where the subject will be, use the camera on manual and set the exposure to the reading of the light diffused through the cup, then walk back to your spot to take the picture.

Ice Chest Camera Bag --
Use an ice chest as a camera bag for your equipment and film when you’re at the pool or beach and want protection from the water and sun. It offers heat pro-tection in the car on hot days too. Security may also be enhanced - most thieves wouldn’t think of stealing an ice chest!

Dirty Sensor - To check your camera sensor for dust, here are a few simple steps to take. Set the ISO @ 100 or the lowest setting. Set the aperture to F/22 or higher. Turn off the anti-shake or any other image stabilizing feature. Take a picture of a grey card, a light colored even surface, or blue sky. Move the lens around during the exposure. Be careful not to over-expose the shot or you won't be able to see the dust. Take a few different shots just to be sure. View the images on your computer. Increasing the contrast shows any dust spots.

Filters on DSLRs with "APS-C" size sensors
- If you're using a full-frame lens on a DSLR with a 1.5x or 1.6x sensor, you can probably use a step down ring and a smaller diameter filter and not have vignetting. For example, a common filter size on lenses is 77mm. If you already have 72mm, 67mm or even 62mm filters, you can use a step down ring and may not have any vignetting. See if a local camera store will let you try out various step-down rings and smaller filters to determine what combination works for your lens.
