Good quote: On religion http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16790/good-quote-on-religion Sat, 22 Apr 2017 09:39:52 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 16790@/talks/discussions

Religion is, indeed, the self-consciousness and self-esteem of man who has either not yet won through to himself, or has already lost himself again.

Rule of thirds: huge eye level research http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/16784/rule-of-thirds-huge-eye-level-research Fri, 21 Apr 2017 09:26:07 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 16784@/talks/discussions

The literature on art history and the aesthetics of photography puts forward a theory of dividing the canvas into thirds, horizontally and vertically. And when human faces are portrayed, two concrete rules for the position of the eyeline are often mentioned:

  • the rule of thirds: the eyeline should be 2/3 (≈0.67) from the bottom
  • the golden ratio rule: the eyeline should be at 1/(golden ratio) (≈0.62) from the bottom

The maxima of the eyeline height distribution for photographs and paintings is predominately in the range of 0.6 to 0.67.
