Looking out of my office window as I write this post, I can see the gentle breeze moving the shrubs, I hear the sound of the lovely wind chimes on my front porch and I see the birds fluttering from one tree to the next.
Spring is a lovely time, don’t you think? So many of you shared amazing spring ideas in last week’s Tuesday Turn About link party! Thanks so much for showing up here each and every week!

Weekly Photography Tip
Have you been practicing shooting in manual mode with the easy steps from last week’s Tuesday Turn About? If you practice using those steps every single time you take a shot, your manual mode skills will improve! You are developing muscle memory each time you shoot in manual mode so keep on practicing!
This week we will begin looking at composition. This will take us two or three weeks to tackle so be sure to stay tuned!
Composition in the photography world is all about how you want to present your image, what part of the scene you want to be the most noticed, and what you want your reader/viewer to see and feel when they see the image.
Composition is about telling the story of your image. We convey our stories through text but also through images. It’s up to us as photographers to convey the story and we can do that by framing the shot so that it is pleasing to the viewer’s eye.
The first aspect of composition that I usually consider is the rule of thirds. Here is how to use the rule of thirds in your photography: imagine a tic-tac-toe grid. You can do this either vertically or horizontally, depending on how you orient your camera.
**BTW, some cameras have a setting for the rule of thirds grid like a tic-tac-toe grid. Look in your manual or do a quick Google search using your camera make and model in your search terms!
Your subject will be pleasing to the eye if you place your subject on the lines of the grid and better yet at the crosspoints on the grid! Try several different places on the grid when placing your subject to see which you like best!
It takes some practice but just like with anything, the more you use the rule of thirds in your photography, the better you will get!
