Photo 52.2: Framed (Balance with people)

We are kicking off week two by looking at the concept of balance within the frame of an image. As in life, balance in photography can often feel elusive. For many of us, when the day to day details are not coming together well, we feel little off-kilter or out of sorts. Conversely, we revel in the harmonious feeling that descends when it all comes together. Similarly, there is something very appealing about a well-balanced image, even if it is not immediately apparent that a dynamic balance is what makes the shot work. Our goal this week was to balance people in an image. This may mean two subjects, or simply finding a way to make another person or persons act as the counterweight to the main subject. We all agree that it was quite a challenge.
