You’ve probably heard the term “rule of thirds” before.  What is it?  Turns out it’s not a rule per se, but a theory on how to effectively organize a composition.  Artist Brandon Schaefer explains in two lessons the key principles involved.  Below I’ve provided two lessons- the first focuses on his own paintings, and the second lesson highlights the work of other artists.  Both lessons reflect the basic principals behind the rule of thirds.
