Rule of thirds

NPhoto - - Niko Pedia -

Cap­ture NX-D’s crop over­lay grid is bro­ken up into a grid of nine rec­tan­gles that cre­ate three col­umns and three rows. In the walkthrough we used this over­lay grid to help us place the girl pre­cisely in the lower cen­tre of the frame for a more bal­anced com­po­si­tion. You can also use the over­lay grid to make the cropped shot com­ply with the clas­sic Rule of Thirds, used by artists for cen­turies. By mak­ing two of the in­ter­sect­ing hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal grid lines over­lap the girl you can place her in an area of the frame that the eye is nat­u­rally drawn to, cre­at­ing a more pleas­ing com­po­si­tion.
