Though winter remains in full force, I was at Litchfield Beach this past weekend and took advantage of the free time to get to know my new camera a bit better with a series of seagull photographs. One goal was to capture a shot to meet this week’s photo challenge, Rule of Thirds.
As noted by WordPress, “The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image. If you focus closely on your subject and use a wide aperture, your photograph’s background will also be beautifully blurred in that blank space. The blurred area behind your focal point is referred to as bokeh, and when executed well, it adds depth and artistry to an otherwise simplistic photograph.”
Here is the photo I thought best met the challenge…
And here are a couple more I like, just for fun.
