Groups of three

Learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom workshops beginner digital photography

There’s something special about threes in art; the Rule of Thirds is obviously a good example of the prominent role of three in artistic composition. Notably, elements in groups of three can also strengthen an image’s composition – perhaps because many people unconsciously impart religious and/or cultural significance to such a grouping. Three items together creates a pleasing sense of balance and repetition.

This time the mission was to compose an image comprised of some sort of trio-based grouping. Participants could seek out a preexisting group of three or create it themselves.

Here’s some of the resulting photos – fabulous!
