Rule of Thirds: 21 Photos with Great Composition

Categories: Photo School

We like the saying "Rules are made to be broken". But you should not be guided by it unconditionally. Beginners still need to pay special attention to the compositional principles of photography. After all, in order to break the rules, they must first be studied up and down.

The rule of thirds and the golden ratio are the basic principles of composition, which most often begin training in all photography courses. Some amateur photographers try to avoid them like the plague, looking for non-standard compositions to give shots an original look and dissimilarity to the work of their colleagues.

But the fact is that many of the most popular photos uploaded to 500px are based on the rule of thirds and the golden ratio. Don't believe? Here are over twenty wildly popular shots from the 500px archives that are beautifully composed with all the basic principles in mind.
