Hey there everyone! So to start this post off I would like to introduce my new blog design. I am still working on the sidebar so that is not completely done but I have a majority already done! I love it. So vintage yet modern! In my digital photo class I am taking, In class we were assigned to take 6 photos using the 9 grid zone. Basically the 9 grid zone is a way to make your photos' more interesting. If you were to draw lines down your photo into thirds in either direction (looks like a tic-tac toe board) you would basically want your main element/s to be on the intersection of the line or directly on one of the lines. The photo above shows how the start of each water tower is on a line as well as the tops of each water tower. The photo is much more interesting this way. Here are a few more samples.
I hope that gave a small tip for beginning photographers! Simply imagine a tic-tac toe grid over your camera screen and align your main focus on one of the intersecting lines or parallel to one of the lines.
