For this project, we learned about alignment in photos that can balance an image. We first took our own photos, and then I layered the Golden Ratio and Rule of Thirds Grids over some of my favorite photos. I then adjusted the transparency so that you were able to see the image and the grid. With the grid on top of the photo, you are able to see where your eye is drawn.

The Golden Ratio was first up.

After rotating the spiral so that the intersecting lines matched up with the subject, I placed the grid onto the image.


I like how the Rule of Thirds images came out. I used the grid on two different images, and the subjects are confined within one of the thirds.


It was interesting to have a grid pinpoint where your eye is drawn to in an image. I liked having the different kinds of grids to show where the best places to have a subject are located within a frame.
