Rule of Thirds is one of the most powerful composition rules. The main goal of this styling is to grab the attention of the audience in one section of an image and guide them to other parts of the photo.
The reason why this rule is so powerful in generating interest is because of how are eyes are positioned. Human eyes are sit in the front of our heads – this often referred to as ‘predator eyes’, meaning we are always focused on what is exactly in front of us.
This is also why photos where the main subject is in the centre of the image (outside of portraits) are often boing.
By focusing the viewers attention to a corner/portion (third), they will naturally look elsewhere in the focus to survey the entire scene.
