The last Bloggography Rule of Thirds Photo Challenge was one of my favorites to date. I am apparently naturally drawn to photos that follow the rule of thirds. Here’s one from two weeks ago that particularly stood out to me. Isn’t this a stunning photo from Jacki at Ravensspell.blogspot.com? Did Manic Mother feature your shot?
Last week’s tutorial was all about lenses. The challenge was to use whatever lens(es) you’ve got to do what they do best. If you have a wide angle lens, try a landscape shot. If you have a fixed lens with a large aperture, try a shallow depth of field picture. If you have a telephoto zoom lens, see what you can get a picture of in the wild.
I’ve got the Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L. Here are two pictures I took with my 28-75mm lens at last week’s Arts Night at school (the school is set up like a museum, with art work from everyone in the school). I love my Tamron because it’s good for both wide angle shots like this one:
The cute boy, third from the right on top, is Twizzler’s self-portrait.

As well as shallow depth of field shots like this one:
