DigPhotog: Rules of Composition: Not Just for Still Photography -- How to Use in Video (W5-P1) [VID] Sp15

The "rules" of composition that you learn for still photography can also be used in your video work.  After you learned about composition in still photography (rule of thirds, framing, etc.), did you start to spot those same rules being used in your favorite TV show or movie?  If not, look for it the next time you are watching TV or a movie.

Take, for example, the Tarantino film, Kill Bill.

Just focus on the rule of thirds.  How often do you see the rule of thirds?  How is it used?

Now, you try it.  Go to YouTube (or another video source) and look for clips of a favorite movie.  See how many rules of composition you see being used.  Besides the rule of thirds, what else do you see?  Framing?
