More about this content:

This content is about using the rule of thirds and the golden spiral in art and photography. The rule of thirds is a composition rule that divides the image into thirds both vertically and horizontally and places the image or key element at the intersections. The golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral that coils inward and is pleasing to the eye. It is often used to place the subject in the smallest part of the spiral so that the eye will naturally flow through the rest of the image. These techniques are used to create elements with pleasing or ideal proportions and to create balance and visual harmony.
