This week’s challenge from 52Frames.com is Rule of Thirds. The Rule of Thirds is typically one of the first rules you learn in photography and one of the best known. Picture a tic tac toe board across your photo dividing the frame into nine equal parts, then you place your subject on one of the intersections of lines. Our eyes naturally
land on these points and they are considered the sweet spots. When I read about this challenge I was thinking of a lone tree in a field, possibly on a horizon line and went for a drive a few miles from my house and here is what I shot.
I shot this on my Sony a6000 with 35mm f/1.8 lens. This was shot at 1/1250 shutter speed, f/1.8 aperture, and ISO of 100. I edited this in Lightroom and placed the tree at the top left intersection or third of the photo. I made some adjustments in the lighting and adjusted the color since this was shot RAW. I also decided to play around in Luminar 4 by Skylum and do some sky replacements since the clouds were kind of boring.
Although I liked both of the sky replacements I went with the original for my post to 52Frames. Next week’s challenge is Intentional Color Palette. This will focus on intentional use of color.
