If you decide to use images within your learning materials, why not make the most of them? Improving your photographic skills might improve not only your student’s experience, but in the process, yours!
The famous ‘Rule of Thirds’
The Rule of Thirds is a principle that helps you frame a scene or portrait in a way that has been found to be pleasing to the human eye. Get this rule right and your photography is half way there, to somewhere.
It is very simple. While looking through your camera’s viewfinder or screen, you divide with imaginary lines the frame in three equal parts horizontally and three equal parts vertically (some cameras already display lines with this purpose). You apply this both when taking pictures in ‘portrait’ (vertically) or ‘landscape’ (horizontally) format.
