I used my brand new Lensbaby that I got as a gift from the guys at uKontrøll! You can achieve some pretty cool effects with this lens.

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head  -- with grids When I’m composing a picture there’s some things I like to keep in mind. One of them is the The rule of thirds. In my head I picture a grid and then place the subject in one of the grid’s cutting points. This is probably one of the most known tricks in the book, but still not everyone thinks about it. It’s an easy way to make your photographs “heaver”. It can make them pop. Take a look at the picture to the left to see what I mean. I use this a lot when I’m cropping images too.

Photoshop tip: If you’re using Adobe’s Photoshop there’s a simple way to get a grid overlaying your images. Go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices. Use the following:

Photoshop tip: Grid overlay

Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (CMD+’ on Mac) or View > Show > Grid.

However. Remember that rules are meant to be broken!
