The composition of the golden ratio or fibonanci is the arrangement of photographs where the point of interest aka the main subject is placed between two intersecting diagonal lines. Fibonacci is one of the techniques in photography which is basically taken from harmony in nature.
At a glance with the explanation above will be confusing, ok … we include the image below to clarify the above information:
The meeting point between the green and red diagonal lines is what is called the golden ratio. When using Lightroom software, there is a crop photo option with this technique. Because if we directly practice it in photography, we need practice and adjustments so that we are proficient.
If you still remember at school, Fibonanci is a sequence of numbers in mathematics, like the following:
This sequence starts at 0 and 1, then the next number is obtained by adding two consecutive numbers before. With this rule, the first row of Fibonaccci numbers is:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946 …
Rows of Fibonacci numbers can be stated as follows:
Fn = (x1n – x2n) / sqrt (5)

An easy example is humans, where humans are often mentioned as having a golden ratio. Golden Ratio is obtained from the comparison of the parts of objects that exist in nature. Because it has a composition that is in harmony with nature and balanced, the golden ratio will provide a strong visual effect.
It would be nice when you are photographing, have already imagined the golden ratio imaginary line, and if you can compose it with the subject of the photo or if it is a model, you can help direct the style. Let’s learn to train our eyes, to find subjects with a golden ratio composition.
