Pro Photographic Tip No 1.

Rule of thirds
Monday 6th of May 2013
When taking photographs of people or objects, make a more interesting composition by using the rule of thirds. Try putting the focal point a third of the way from the top or bottom and a third in from one side, instead of bang in the middle. Compare the two images, the image of the girl on the left is much more pleasing to the eye than the girl on the right.
