Thursday’s Special: Breaking the Rules

When I came up with the theme for today’s challenge I was thinking about breaking photographic rules like the rule of thirds, taking unfocused photos, holding camera on an angle, experimenting with framing, or the rule that I most definitely broke – the rule of creating active space for moving subject to move into.

If you are photographing a subject that is moving you should place more empty space in front of it than behind it. This gives the viewer of the image a sense of where the subject is moving and creates a sense of anticipation.

While following this rule can produce some excellent results, breaking it can add a little tension and intrigue to your images. It can also convey a sense of speed and/or give the viewer a sense of where the subject has been rather than where they are headed.

If you are not a photographic rule breaker, feel free to post your different take on the theme. I look forward to seeing your results. Happy Thursday!
