Applying the Rule of Thirds

Mastering the rule of thirds in photography takes time and practice. Though many people use the auto "rule of thirds" grid on smartphone cameras these days, I would suggest mastering it manually. It helps you take photos with both camera and smartphones more fluidly. The pictures will flow and you'll get better results investing time in your own skills.

These chickens were clucking at me at Wat Paramaiyikawat on Koh Kret in Bangkok. Capturing chickens can be hard because of how easily they scare so I had to visualize the rule of thirds ahead of times. I had about 3 seconds before they ran off and hope they enjoyed the moment as much as I did.

This was a chellenging photo to take. I knew I wanted the intersecting point in the lower right because of the little girl's height. I didn't expect giraffe tongues to be quick! I literally had to wait for the tongue to fully extend to take the photo. It took a few tries and luckily the little girl didn't run out of Chinese long beans, LOL.

Taking photos of captive crocodiles can be tricky because of most animal prisons. Most have the pit and then some sort of walkway above to feed the crocodiles. Luckily, crocodiles breed at an accelerated rate so most pits have many captives to get a good photo from. I walked the walkway for a few minutes until I found these 2 magnificent beasts and pinned the larger ones head in the rule of thirds’ bottom right intersecting point.

I hope some of my animal photography examples of the rule of thirds, gives you ideas for your upcoming photos.

Thanks for coming by, and have an amazing week.

That shot of the chickens or roosters (they look like roosters to me) is amazing. I dont know exactly what it is about it but it really appeals to me. Nice. I like it!
