Dividing the frame

13 Jul

I think that this chapter of the material i have read so far is very interesting and essential. Knowing the possibilities and being conscious about how strong a part of the picture is depending on size, position, colour, and so on can really improve pictures and improve the way the visitor is guided through the frame.

On page 53 of the TAOP, course-material:

“Two unequal objects can be balanced by placing them carefully in the frame so that the larger object is closer to the centre and the smaller one near the edge of the frame. Maximum symmetry occurs when objects or lines radiate around the  frames centre giving symmetry on all axes.”

That is very impressively shown in the picture to the left, where a man in white clothes in front of a dark background counterbalances the bigger white sign on the other side of the picture.
