The “rules” of photography are there for a reason, but they are a help in developing creativity and not steadfast rules. In this photograph the subject is front and center for impact with leading lines (another of the library of rules for creativity) guiding the eyes. To put it mildly, rules for creativity are an oxymoron. If rules were all there was to creativity we would all be coloring within the lines. A photography professor told me that it takes more time to know how to break the rules than to teach the rules themselves. Breaking rules for the sake of it is not the point, the point is to create photography worth looking at and the rule of thirds does not guarantee that.
