Your very first Miz Art is a fun one!

Your first Miz Art:

View these websites:

Pick one image and describe the composition and focal point and answer whether the photographer uses the Rule of Thirds.

Composition: Arrangement of artistic parts so as to form a unified whole. In other words: How the imagery, colors, subjects are arranged in a work of art.

Focal Point: The most important part of the image, usually the subject. Many times the focal point will have a bright color near it or on it to draw attention to it (warm colors: red, yellow or orange).

Rule of Thirds in Composition: Placing the focal point on the 1/3rd or 2/3rds line of the canvas, NOT right in the middle.
