For our current AC Core project, we are doing something called Image Compositing or Hybrid Imagery. This is putting two photos together to make one image using a graphic design platform. The results of this can be something that may never be possible in real life. Rule of Thirds is basically breaking down an image into 9 parts and using the parts where the lines intersect as a guide for where to put the subject of your photo. It can be used in photography to enhance composition by giving a better way of viewing a photo that the audience can receive naturally. Before taking a photo, professional photographers think about the best way to composition their photo/subject and how to make the photo eye-catching and pleasing to look at. I think that editing photos is an incredible to way emphasis the subject and just make it more pleasing to look at in general. However, not all have to be edited in order to be extraordinary photos.
