The golden spiral, based on the Fibonacci sequence, produces a guideline that can be very pleasing to the human eye when applied to photographs.
- [Instructor] In this movie,…we're going to talk about another compositional tool…which is the golden spiral,…also known as the reason you should have…paid more attention in math class.…And so, it all starts with Fibonacci,…a 13th century dude, who established the sequence…that starts zero one, and then continues…one, two, three, five, eight, 13, 21, and so forth.…And you might wonder how in the world…you come up with these numbers.…So, it's based on the equation,…the current number, Fn, equals…the sum of the two previous numbers.…
So for example, after the number two,…you can see three followed by five.…If you add three and five together, you get eight.…If you add five and eight together, you get 13.…If you add eight and 13 together, you get 21.…And you'll see that works throughout the entire sequence,…starting with zero and one,…which add up to one and so forth.…Now if you tile these numbers using a set of boxes,…you get the Fibonacci blocks.…And so just to elaborate here,…the Fibonacci blocks look like this…
