How often do you use the rule of thirds in landscape photography?

All Topics

I use the rule of thirds all the time in my photography. Whenever I’m stuck and I can’t figure out how to make a composition I’ll simply fall back to the rule of thirds and use that to place the important elements in my frame. I also tend to think of the rule of thirds more as the “rule of interest.” Whatever is more interesting in my photo I want to give more weight. So if I’m shooting a really interesting landscape under a boring sky I might give the landscape more weight and place the sky 1/4 of the way from the top of the frame. Or if I’m shooting a reflection where the sky and the land are of the same interest then I might divide the frame up into halves. It all depends on what I think is interesting and what I want the viewer to pay the most attention to.
