“Odd numbers are better than even ones in photography.”
I heard about this ‘odd rule’ years ago in a magazine and laughed it off as the author having some sort of obsessive compulsive disorder – but ever since I heard it I’ve noticed that in the shots I take it is true.
I’m not exactly sure why it works – but it does. Perhaps it’s about the balance that odd numbers create (there’s always one thing in the centre to give balance)?
I find that three objects in a shot are particularly good. Five, Seven or more can work but you run the risk of clutter.
Give it a try – it works!
