This week Tina has given us the Lens Artists Challenge of showing our photos that illustrate the Rule of Thirds. As you can guess this is where the main subject of the photo takes up one third of the photo on right or left , top or bottom. Well…. I looked through my archives and had a tough time finding any horse photos that observed this rule but here are a few.
Sometimes when photographing horses in action it is just not possible for me to think about any rules. The photo below is of Lynsey Rowan riding Carlucci in a pirouette. I find this movement very hard to photograph as there is only a second to get the right moment. In this photo I managed to get that ideal moment. But no rule of thirds observed here! Horse and rider take center stage!
Thank you Tina for this challenge. It was a tough one for me but an interesting one nonetheless. Click here to see Tina’s post and her Rule of Thirds Lens Artists Challenge photos. There are also links to others’ responses. Do take a look!
I’d love to hear from you!
