Odd Numbers

Odd numbers are better than Even ones in photography.”
I first heard about this ‘odd rule’ many years ago at my local Camera Club, and decided to experiment with it to see if it would work for me. I’m not really sure why it works, but it does. Perhaps it’s about the balance that odd numbers create. I find that three objects in a shot are particularly good.
Five, Seven or more can work but you run the risk of clutter in your image.
Give it a try and you will be pleasantly surprised on how it works!


  1. Well I guess these are things you might not think of by yourself but I can see why it would work

  2. Thanks for the tip, I will try this too. Just a little question if I may ask, what's the best way to get sharper photos? Have a great day my friend.

  3. I noticed this awhile ago. I tend to take lots of 3s. :)

  4. I had been checking my photo lists when I noticed that i tend to take phot's with odd number images and thought it might be something to share
