The Rule of Thirds

Now rules, are of course, there to be broken. Invariably though, some are worth following in the right context. One is travel photographs or just plain ‘n’ simple snapshots. Here we have Pammukale in Turkey. It’s great to the eye, pretty weird but er, it’s all white. So rather that take just a shot of the landscape you really have to put someone or something in it. And when you do – not right in the centre. If the boyfriend wants to gurn, fine, but stick him off to one side. If the girlfriend wants to wear a brightly coloured sarong, do the same, then buy her a Kir Royale and propose. Er.
