This is a screen shot of the cropping tool in Lightroom and an insight into the one third sectional compositional ideas I’m currently working on. You can see that I’m making decisions based on how each of the sections contributes to the total composition. I’m looking at each of these sections as mini compositions in themselves and how they contribute to the entire composition. This is very different from just lining up visual elements on the dividing lines as I’m paying much more attention to how each section relates to one another.
