BPG 52 Week Challenge: Rule of Thirds

Continuing the weekly challenges for the Brighton Photographers Group on Facebook. The rules are simple, one image per theme (unless otherwise stated) and ideally shot the same week as the theme (ie no submitting from archives).

As one of the fundamental compositional tools in composition, it’s sometimes satisfying to break the “rule of thirds” but it’s a tool I continously come back to as it’s so simple.

It’s also a tool that can be applied anywhere, which left plenty of scope for this challenge. Perhaps it was too open as I struggled to find a compelling subject while keeping the composition about the rule of thirds. I decided simplicity and a shallow depth of field was the key and looked for potential answers with uncluttered backgrounds. These are tigerella tomatoes, and yes, they are delicious when ripe!
