Move It! – Compositional Devices

Today we discussed how moving the focal point out of the center of the composition can lead to the creation of more interesting photographs.  Three compositional devices discussed were:

Rule of Thirds (dividing the total composition into 3rds and aligning focal point on these imaginary line)

Golden Triangle (aligning focal points on diagonal lines)

 

 

Golden Ratio (based on the Fibonacci Sequence)

Some examples:

Portrait Photography/ Golden Ratios, Golden Triangle, Golden Spiral

(Note: Golden Spiral refers to Golden Ratio composition)
