Seeing the Rule of Thirds - by Videomaker Magazine

This article explains - Why professionals use the rule of thirds and how to begin thinking in terms of composition and improving your shooting and framing by using The Rule of Thirds. 


"Good visual artists - camera people, designers, photographers and painters - have minds that are constantly thinking of composition; it goes on in the background of their thoughts. Walking into a room with or without a camera, they will notice back lighting, they'll notice cluttered backgrounds and where best to stand to avoid them and they'll also know where to place the camera to best achieve off-center composition according to the Rule of Thirds. They'll know this without thinking about it, in the same way that you avoid stepping on an overturned trash can on the sidewalk."
