Lets start with this topic by introducing this technique that has been known to people for centuries. "Golden section" is a geometric formula invented by the ancient Greeks. The form of composition following this rule is considered to be "harmony""What is the color of the back of the chili red dragon fish? When enjoying an image work, the significance of this rule is to provide a geometric segment that is reasonably divided. For many painters / artists, the" golden section "is theirA guideline that must be deeply understood in the creation, and photographers are no exception.

Principle 1

As shown in Figure A: The "Golden Section" formula can be derived from a square, divide the bottom edge of the square into two equal parts, take the midpoint X, use X as the center of the circle, and the line segment XY as the radius to make a circle. Its intersection with the bottom line isPoint Z, thus extending the square into a rectangle with a ratio of 5: 8 (Y point is the "golden point"), A: C = B: A = 5: 8.Fortunately, the ratio of 35MM film format is very close to this 5: 8 ratio (24:36 = 5: 7.5)

Rule of thirds

The “rule of thirds” is actually just a simplified version of the “golden section”. Its basic purpose is to avoid symmetrical composition. Symmetrical composition usually places the subject in the center of the frame, which is often annoying.In Figures C1 and C2, you can see that there are four points related to the "Golden Section", marked with a "ten" word line.There are two basic methods of using the "third rule" to avoid symmetry. The first one: we can divide the picture into two areas that occupy 1/3 and 2/3 area respectively.

The second kind: directly refer to the four "golden section" points in the picture.For example, suppose we see a very fascinating landscape, but lack a subject with a beautiful geometric structure, so the photo taken will only be an empty scene, how should we deal with it?Try to find an object that is in sharp contrast with this monotonous environment, and place the subject at one of the "ten" dots in Figure C2, so that the photo has an obvious anchor point, andGuide the audiences eyes from here to the whole landscape.

Natural frame

Sometimes there is an eye-catching subject in the scene we see, but often because the messy environment around the subject distracts the audiences attention and weakens the attractiveness of the subject, the final effect of the photo is very disappointing.Try to find a natural frame that can eliminate the interference of the messy environment to make the audience focus on the subject. As shown in Figure D, the branches around the main body form a natural frame to make the middle rock more prominent.

The natural rock opening in Figure E is also an excellent frame.

Figure E

Cross line

The cross / diagonal line is actually another form of "golden section". The basic idea is to provide a guide line to guide your line of sight. The ideal is the connection between two corners.The traditional method thinks that the upper left corner is the best starting point, because most people are used to start browsing a picture from here.However, if the diagonal line is a single straight line, it is often very flat and annoying, so there must always be some kind of embellishment in the figure (see Figure G). In Figure F, a focal point with multiple diagonal lines appears, allowing the viewers eyes to browse along the guide line in multiple directions to make the picture lively and interesting.

Figure F

In Figure G, there are two anchor points: the boat and the pavilion, and the right embellishment breaks the symmetry that was originally very general.
