Prisoners: Triangle Rule (4 replies)
I was looking at an analysis of your work on Prisoner's on Matthew Scott's website and came across an analysis of a shot where you use a compositional technique called the "triangle rule." I have never heard of or noticed this technique before.
What is the purpose of the triangle rule?
Why did you use this compositional tool for this shot?
Thank you, sir.
I never use these kinds of guidelines when I am shooting. I guess that both the Golden Mean and 'the triangle rule' (which I must admit to not being familiar with) offer ways to analyze the balance within a composition but after the event, in my case at least.
That is interesting, he posits a few more examples of this, but it looks like he's adding his own thing into the composition.
I cant really see how one would use this technique in the field.
