Gun n Run for December: The Rule of Thirds
Unlike the last contest that focused on the subject, namely "Toys", this contest will focus on composition. The rule of thirds is a long standing element of composition in painting, photography, and many other forms of visual art. So our challenge is to use the rule of thirds in a photograph. The subject is completely up to you as long as it is within the groups overall rules.
Learn about the "Rule of Thirds" here from the school of digital photography:
One thing to remember don't just slap the rule of thirds on every photo! Sometimes it doesn't apply at all. Use it where it will enhance your composition.
The 12" 2-in-1 Hollow Collapsible Reflector is versatile in the field and in the studio, providing shadow-lightening detail in your subject, using available, or studio lighting. This Reflector is suitable for head-shots, and small still-life setups. It folds down to 1/3 its open size, and comes with a storage sleeve. Silver increases the specular highlights and yields a high-contrast image. Its perfect for video, product shots and B&W photography. Gold produces a natural, golden fill that is great for sunsets, jewelry, and indoor portrait (heck no...camera, lens, flash, and stand not included!!)
