Every Friday, people from MyJapan (MyJapan is an organization that has been created after the great earthquake and tsunami of March 11th, 2011) come in my class to teach us the art of photography.
from books, lines from tables, lines from shelves, lines from everywhere. We had to take lines
because it is a start to the art of photography. We did this because when we took a picture, we could observe the vanishing points, we could learn how to correctly align the lines, how the lines are made, where are the lines, how the lines are straight...
The button used to take a picture is called "the shutter button" (my dad told me strange word in french Obturateur, but I already know Shutter in english). You know, for that button there are two clics to take a picture. So, you'll need to do the first clic while looking at the sun or a light at the same time (I would recommend you to use the sun because it's more powerful). Then,
you will have to ask a friend to stand right in front of a window, or you could put a geometric shape in front of a window (you could also put a curtain if it isn't to thick). Then, you would do the other half of the clic.
Note: while all that time, you would have to keep hold of the first clic where it was.
Okay, so, the rule of 3/3 means that the main object of the picture does not always need to be in the center of the image, but it could be on the right side of the image, or on the left side of the image,
Your choice! On your camera, there should be a mode "Grid Lines". Its a mode that puts 3/3 lines on your camera screen.
One example of a short story is when you take a picture of a friend with two bottles in each hand.
Then you take a second picture of your friend with the bottles on the ground. That is a short story.
