Stronger Composition: Pyramid / Triangular

The concept of the Pyramid composition in photography, also known as Triangular composition or the rule of thirds applied diagonally,

The use of triangular or pyramid-like compositions can be traced back to classical art. Painters and artists often arranged elements in triangular formations to achieve balance and harmony in their works. Examples are Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” (c. 1484–1486), Raphael’s “The School of Athens” (1509–1511), Rembrandt van Rijn’s “The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp” (1632), Michelangelo Buonarroti’s sculpture “Pieta” (1498–1499).
