As I researched how wide spread the rule of thirds had become, I found a BLOG post that proved just how confused and lost some artists are when in comes to composition. It reads, “the rule of thirds is a simplification of the golden ratio.” If that’s true, you can say a house made of popsicle sticks is a simplification of the Eiffel tower. Both are leaps and bounds different in comparison. Similar because they are both structures, but completely different.
