Making Dynamic Pictures

These compositional principals help you create a visual hierarchy in your photographs.

Diagonals – Sloping lines

Figure to Ground -the relationship between the subject and the background sometimes described as negative and positive space.

Leading Lines – lines in the photograph that lead the eye to the main subject

Patterns – repeated elements. Break the pattern for visual interest

Symmetry – If you fold the image in half the two haves are very similar and have equal visual weight. Or make it asymmetrical to add tension to the composition.
