The Rule of Thirds, also known as, Rule of Thumb or the guidelines, is one of the basic rules of photography that is followed by all photographers. The guideline proposes that an image should be imagined as divided into nine equal parts by two equally spaced horizontal lines and two equally spaced vertical lines, and those important compositional elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections. By placing the subject on the grid lines or at their intersections, more depth is added to the picture composition than by simply placing the subject in the center.
