Digital Photography - Rule of thirds

We have experimented with camera angles * Bird's Eye View (from above) * Worm's Eye View (from down low) * Finding an unusual/interesting angle We also thinking about lighting and focus when we take photos. Today we are going to build on this learning and think about the rule of thirds. Watch the clip on slide 1 Highlights: imagine a 'tic tac toe' board in the frame (where you are taking the photo) and place the focal point (the interesting thing you are taking the photo of) on one of the places where the lines cross. This is the rule of thirds because you have imagined the photo in thirds (top, middle and bottom & left, middle and right) Head outside and have some fun experimenting with camera angles and the rule of thirds. photo Select and upload your favourite photos. Use the mic to explain why you like each photo - what is the focal point and how have you used the rule of thirds. Have fun! This is an opportunity to show rekareka and whakawhanaungatanga in your learning as you are sharing what makes you happy. As always remember ngākau tapatahi as you embrace a new challenge.
