    Similar to posing a group by using triangles

    too much theory for me. Am old fashion, practice,practice practice, until my eyes and brain say. YEP. ;)

    i have seen this before and thought the same thing then as now, too many words but i haven't come up with a simple explanation so perhaps i should keep my mouth or rather fingers shut.

    altho , i do discuss the importance of triangles in my classes so does that count:er:

    Like the ROT, and other compositional considerations, it's a guideline that may or may not jibe with someones artistic vision.

    However, if you want to maximize the visual impact of an image, particularly in a commercial context, it's worth having in your bag of tricks.

    I have been using the diagonal grid lines in LR for a while now, and I have to say - it is my favorite...
