 Rule of Thirds and custom Image Critique

Rule of Thirds and custom Image Critique

Saturday 22 June
Island Park - 9am - 2 Hours
Sarasota Photography Group
Keith Baumbaugh
One of the most basic tenets of composition is the Rule of Thirds. Although most people are familiar with this technique it is often forgotten in the haste to take a photo. Make use of this technique can add more interest to your images by leading the viewer into/out of your image..

In this meetup we will practice using the Rule of Thirds in a setting full of photographic possibility.

I suggest bringing a few of your past images for a custom critique.. They can be on your phone/table but an actual print is best.

    Title or Location: Hollis Gardens
    I found that I enjoy taking pictures of flowers , and I find that most photos are of all the perfect beautiful ones , but sometimes some of the flowers with imperfections can be as beautiful as the flawless ones. I think this can apply to people as well. No matter your flaws or imperfections someone can still see the beauty in you.

    Title or Location: The wheat fields of "The Palouse" in eastern Washington state.
    For about 5 years we owned an art gallery in a small town on an island in northern Washington, specializing in photography. Digital photography had just started to overtake film use, so part of our business was teaching how to get the most out of digital cameras with Photoshop & photography workshops. Lightroom wasn't out yet. Many of our workshops were multi-day trips around the state. This shot was taken during a 3-day workshop we taught in the wheat fields of eastern WA, known as The Palouse

    Title or Location: Some backroad in the SW parts of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. I don't remember the actual town, as we did a lot of exploring on that trip.
    Being in the middle of nowhere in the Rocky Mountains made it no problem to find a "dark sky." There was a very small camp ground near a dam in the distance that had some lights. We shot several "Star Trail" images this night, most included the North Star in order to show "star spirals" above old barns or farm equipment we found. This one I just wanted "falling star trails" with a few lights in the distance to show where the ground was.I've been shooting (and teaching) for almost 20 years. I'm

    Title or Location: Night-time at Portland Bill lighthouse
    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Title or Location: St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park
    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.
