Technical Bits of Photograpy

In this blog post you will see examples of the Rule of Thirds, Depth of Field, and Leading Lines drawn over on professional photos as well as my own amateur photos demonstrating the same aspects. I found the following three photos at http://www.freeimages.com

 

Photo on the left is original. Photo on the right has a draw over showing where the focus changes in this Depth of Field example.

Here are the photos I took:

Depth of Field

          

These photos are an example of Depth of Field. The background is blurred while the soldier is the main focus

      

These photos are an example of Leading Lines. The pattern of the wood shows nice horizontal patters

 

This is the Rule of Thirds. As you can see Paw Patrol Marshall fits nicely into the intersection.

While my amateur photos aren’t the prettiest or the best quality, you can see that thinking about how to frame you photo and what elements to use can change the expression of that photo
