| p.1 #17 · Any way to get rule of thirds overlay for Nikon DSLRs? |
It's not poor logic at all. I use grid lines for technical photographic reasons: to square the camera to the horizon for landscapes, building lines, copying, etc.
The "rule of thirds" is not meant to be technical. It's not meant to be measured to the exact point. It's a guideline that helps one with composition which is a creative aspect of photography.
You can use the grid lines for your "creative" process if you so choose. But, what I said still stands: "If you need to use grid lines to compose your picture using the "Rule of Thirds", you have bigger issues with visualization that you need to resolve."
If you can't visualize about 1/3rd up, down, left, or right in the viewfinder, you have bigger issues!
