    Dodging, with no "e" is the process of lightening selected areas in a photo; originally dodging was done under an enlarger's lens, by hold back or "dodging" the light, using a thin wire and a shaped piece of posterboard or cotton ball, etc, or by using one's hands to "hold back" the light, in order to lighten selected areas. BUrning in was often done with the hands, making various sizes of openings with your hands, or by using burn-cards or "vignetters"...burning in is the opposite of dodging.

    Today, dodging can be done in image editing software, and it still refers to selectively lightening areas of an image.

    The thirds rule is called more properly the "rule of thirds"; a quick Google search ought to give a good definition of the rule of thirds in something like 2,000 or so articles.

    What is dodging - Bing

    thirds rule - Bing

    You learn so much more when you do your own research, rather than relying on spoon fed answers.

    The Rule of Thirds (ROT) is only 1 of many visual art compositional guidelines.

    you will get sarcastic remarks that help you exactly big fat zero, but hopefully the people who post actually intending to help will outweigh those; hopefully
