One always hears about composition and the rule of thirds. It’s all about composition, focus & lighting for photographers & designers. And, I decided to do an exercise and put a rule of thirds grid over the work of a few famous artists. Sure enough – they followed the rule of thirds.
The work of Lewis Hine are inspiring – his photo, above, speaks thousands of words, follows the rule of thirds, and reminds me to never be satisfied & to keep trying.
Georges de La Tour also inspires me – his painting, below, captures light and emotion in a style which instinctively informs mine.
Keeping them in mind along with the rule and it works well for me!
