Rule of Odds – Week 32 Challenge!

This week, we want you to have odd thinking…. that old chestnut!

Rule of Odds

THE RULE OF ODDS like all photography rules is not a rule at all, but a guide to better practice (possibly) and aid to creative thinking.

The rule of odds suggests that, whenever possible, a composition should have an odd number of objects, rather than an even number. So an image should have three bottles rather than two, and five people rather than four.

Psychologists suggest that our brains pay more attention to groups of 3, 5 and 7 than 2, 4 and 6. Now whether you agree with this is not that important – but it can help you think about your composition and placement of elements within your viewfinder/frame.

So this week, we want you to have odd thinking – use the rule of odds in your images this week.

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.

E-mail them to viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com.
