Paula invited us to share images showing a trio of some kind. I must say her cute image of three puffins is a winner for me.
I’ve read a lot about photography composition. Apparently, it is good to try and compose things in threes, perhaps because build a dynamic tension in the shot or create an imaginary triangle for your eye to follow around the image. Some call it the Rule of Odds if you want to read more about it.
So whilst I have composed these three images with three items, I don’t think all of them create imaginary triangles or create dynamic tension. What do you think? Is one image stronger than the other because it is more dynamic?
I’ve chosen black and white shots on purpose, to showcase the three-ness of the compositions rather than the colours.
1. A trio of pears
This one does have an imaginary triangle in the way the pears are positioned.
2. A trio of pots
3. A trio of owls
Until next time,
