Photography for Beginners Lesson 2: The Rule of Thirds

Hi, yesterday, I have learned about the Exposure Triangle, I hope you did too. Today, we will learn what is meant by the Rule of Thirds. In public administration, this refers to the rule of thumb-the one best way. In photography, this refers to the rule of thirds which means a guide for us. We will look it this way, it will guide us to imagine that an image is “divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally vertical lines” and your object of focus should be put along such lines or at their intersections to creat “tension, energy and interest” to your output and just simply taking pictures and putting your subjects on the center. 

It was John Thomas Smith who first wrote the rule of thirds in 1797. “Two distinct, equal lights should never appear in the same picture.” To give solidarity to your images, sime parts of the picture should be as light and some as dark as possible. 

This is all I have today. Till the next lesson and tomorrow we will have a little exercise.

Please feel free to comment to add to my learnings. It is highly appreciated and thanks! 

Best and regards!

Kalibo Adventure

For the kids summer is about to end, but for me it has just began. My school schedule for summer is June and July. So that is why I said so that my summer has just began. 

After my Tagaytay adventure last May 20 and 21, 2017. I went home to Iloilo and had an unplanned trip to Kalibo, Philippines, to visit a relative. My five days vacation made me explore places in Kalibo. 

First stop the Bakhawan Eco Park. A 1km walk to the beach front. The place is nice for watching sunset and for relaxation, commune with nature and the sea. 




The kids enjoyed and had fun with the water at the Chocolate Haus. 




 I had visited the Marzons Hotel Kalibo and took some pictures. 


And of course who would miss the flavors of Kalibo? 

See for yourself the wonders of Kalibo, Philippines!
