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:
Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (or go to View > Show > Grid).
On Mac it’s Command+’ (or go to View > Show > Grid).
However. Remember that rules are meant to be broken!

Next up is the Ozora Festival in Hungary.
So we went to Austria again. This time we went to Innsbruck to trekk the mountains. Austria is a really beautiful country with lots to offer. But the nature is what drew us here, you’ll also see why in the following pictures.
Do you feel the inspiration?

The keymaker says: “You can’t be here. It’s dangerous!”
Jonathan: “Oh, it’s okay. I’m an engineer.”
More pictures will follow.
Pictures like these makes me look forward to the woods again. The birds tweeting nonstop, the gentle breeze caressing your cheeks and the peace you feel of just sitting there. I’ll head for the trees this weekend and I’ll bring the camera.
