Here's a glimpse of some of these guides: The rule of thirds is a great introduction to getting out of the habit of framing your subjects in the middle. The phi grid divides the golden ratio frame into 1:1.618:1 portions horizontally and vertically. Sometimes, the rule of thirds can seem too obvious and create imbalance; the phi grid looks more natural, balanced, and visually pleasing. Diagonals help create movement, energy, and emotion in your image.
The Fibonacci spiral, also known as the golden spiral, is perfect when you’re dealing with curved lines or compositional movement. It is based on a complicated series of squares, which help position elements. The spiral then gives you an idea of how the scene in the image should flow—through curved leading lines to a focal point.
