The first image is “Symmetrical Balance ”:
The balance between these subjects fit perfectly within frame. The lighting that are casting double shadows show the almost the exact same lighting sequence. Although the boarder down the middle is a little distracting from the split when it heads down the middle of the frame, it does capture a nature of balance.
Second is “Asymmetrical Balance”:
This photo follows that asymmetrical balance well, but it’s almost showing a sort of balance between these subjects. It’s interesting because even though its shown that the subjects are in the middle of the frame it still still throws the perception off of where the balance stands.
Third is “Closeup Shot”:
This close up shot is exactly what the titles says. It’s a perfect example of what a close up should be and how it should be framed with the right amount of head space.
Fourth is “Long Shot”:
The composition in this picture is very well done. It shows a perfect example of framing a subject in a long shot with just the right amount of headroom. Although it is correct on framing the subject seems to be almost in the middle and that’s not bad, but it would better if the subject was just pushed a little bit on the right to give it that appeal from the rule of thirds.
The final image is “Image Balanced With the Weight of Gaze”:
Although it followed the criteria of the goal it failed to show the depth in the picture. It looks like another close up, but with the subject at a different angle. Maybe if there was something to compair the subject to in this image it would give off more depth and weight. Overall with the subject looking at the other end of the frame it does give the view an idea of where the the focus is directed and that was a good call from the photographer.
