For The Tennessee Magazine’s latest Shutterbug Photography Contest, readers were asked to send in images that use the composition technique of “Rule of Thirds.” Nashville Tennessean staff photographer Lacy Atkins was r guest judge and with the staff sifted through nearly 1,000 entries to find the winners.
A strong composition is just one element to making a successful photograph. These winning photographers used the rule of thirds to make dynamic images of their subjects. Each winning image combines the elements of strong subject matter, good composition and interesting lighting.
The Tennessee Magazine thanks everyone who sent photographs for the contest. Be sure to view their finalists here.
