If it was good enough for Leonardo...

So a lot of you know my feeling about composition.  I have always felt the rule of thirds is a lazy way to compose.  Its very predictable and doesn't really challenge the photographer or illustrator.  So my method is to use the fibonacci spiral or the divine proportions.  It is more organic and creates a more pleasing composition.  It allows you to lead your viewer through the image.  After awhile of using it it will become second nature.  When you understand how the human eye views an image you can use the fibonacci to lead the eye through an image not just look at it.  Next post I will talk about what the eye looks for in an image and how I use it in my story telling.
