An excellent article on some of the fundamental "rules" of photography. Thanks Carl!

This is a great article, Carl. It's something that every photographer should read through, regardless of what level of photographer you are.

I enjoyed the article. Thanks Carl (and Tim)
I have a question:

Quote:
Follow the Rule of Thirds. This is one of the most common elements of good photographic composition. Keeping the subject in the dead center of a photograph gives a very static and quite boring photo. Move your camera so that the subject falls into the right and/or left third or the top or bottom third of your viewfinder.
I thought the rule of thirds states that you have to put the subject on the dividing line between the different 3rds, not actually inside the space of one of the 3rds.

If you get me?

It's not an exact point you need to place your subject, it's merely a zone to work with. Yes, a photo with the subject to the right of that "imaginary" dividing line would not be as effective as one that has that "imaginary" line bisecting the subject, NORMALLY. Remember, it's a guideline, not a rule, and certainly not an exact science.
