|Holiday 88 front end|
Composing part of a vintage auto is a fairly straight-forward task. If you study the above photo almost all of the important parts of the it–the whitewall tire, the word “Holiday,” the headlight all follow the Rule of Thirds.
The composition of a photograph should follow this rule, a rule which not only applies to photography, but also to video on almost every device. Placing objects one-third from the left side of the frame is just the beginning of this rule. The rule of thirds allows objects to be placed in four places in the frame:
1. one-third from the bottom
2. one-third from the top
3. one-third from the left side
4. one-third from the right side
Which third you are going to place your subject/object is up to you. Most of the time your aesthetic sense will tell you.
