We've all heard of this magical thing called the golden spiral, which derives from the golden ratio; However, I feel like there's a general confusion around how to use it in the composition of an image.
This image includes both the golden spiral and the golden triangles.
The golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral where the growth factor is φ (phi); Where is the positive root of:
Which is, by defenition:
This pattern is present all throughout nature, since the ratio of two consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence tends towards φ.
So, how does one apply this rule to the composition of an image?
