When making products using your photographs, you must use the “Rule of Three” in order to create effective designs that will sell on Zazzle. Your photo products on Zazzle will stand out using this rule. It is very simple. You can apply it to all your photographs, whether they be horizontal or vertical.

Watch this informative video where I explain the rule of three in design and how it works. You can take stunning photographs using the tips I teach you.

Framing a Subject with the Rule of 3

Another tip is to divide your viewfinder into 3 equal vertical sections and 3 equal horizontal sections to create a grid with quadrants. You can do this visually but some cameras even have this as a setting to help novices frame the perfect shot.

So now that you have divided up your frame, what do you do with these imaginary lines and quadrants? The rule is to make sure that the key focus (main subject) in your shot is placed in one of the 4 cross-sections of these lines.

In my case, I am showing you the vertical shot I took of the mountain withe the house on the beautiful island of Sa Dragonera, with is off the coast of Mallorca Spain.

The mountain is in the top left point where the lines intersect. Since this is my main focus, it is positioned properly for maximum effect of framing the subject in your shot. Also, there is nothing else that is significant on any of the other 3 points of intersection. That is good so that there is no visual competition form anything else in my photograph. There is one small tree, but since it is small and one of a grouping your eye does not focus there, rather it focuses on the mountain peak.

Wasn’t that easy? Let me sum it up for you.

  1. Find a beautiful subject image
  2. Look for the components of the Rule of Three
  3. Make sure you have three subjects (a large, medium and small subject in the view finder)  and that the the main focus of the shot sits on one of the 4 intersection points when you divide your photo into quadrants.
  4. Look for these three elements in both horizontal and vertical formats when taking your shots
  5. Don’t try to use a horizontal image on a vertical product on Zazzle, because you will loose your subject framing effect of the Rule of Three and the effectiveness of your design.
