Learning how to take pictures

So I applied the rule of thirds to the chickpea pictures.

I suspect it has improved the focus of the picture. The pictures were taken on the manual setting, with the aperture set to maximum. I adjusted the shutter speed until I got the right amount of exposure, if that makes any sense. 🙂

  3. Yea, thanks for submitting your photos to the quest! Can you see how placing the chick pea in the lower right 1/3 intersection changed the focus of the photo and brought your eye right to the open chick pea? Great work!

    Yep, I thought it was a good photo to begin with; but shifting the focus with ROT made an impressive difference. Thank you!
