I have selected these photos for Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge. Last week, Cee shared information about the Rule of Thirds. This week, she extended that discussion to cover what she calls the Magic of Two-Thirds. Instead of putting our subject in one third of the frame, we are to use two-thirds, leaving the rest bokeh or negative space to accent our subject. Cee suggests that this tip is good to use with still life photography.
My first photo is a picture of my dog, Pal. He is sitting “still” for his portrait! His face takes up most of the photo frame and you will see his interesting eyes. Having one blue and one brown eye makes him special.
The next photo is of a neon and metal star that is a city landmark on top of Mill Mountain. You can see more information about the star in my previous posts called Up and Down Mill Mountain and Landmark.
The following photos, showing the two thirds technique, are of flowers found in my backyard in summertime-a delicate dandelion puff and a wild hibiscus.
I hope you all have a magical day!
