  • BalanceSymmetryBoth sides of an imaginary central line are the same

    AsymmetryBoth sides of an imaginary central line ARE NOT the same

  • SymmetryBoth sides of an imaginary central line are the same Karl Blossfeldt

  • BalanceEquality of the left & right sides of the image

    Asymmetrical Balance - Both sides of an imaginary central line ARE NOT the same Symmetrical Balance - Both sides of an imaginary central line are the same

  • Draw Attention to Your SubjectLeading Lines Lines that lead in a path to the subject Ansel Adams

  • Lines that lead in a path to the subject Lewis HineLeading Lines

  • Leading LinesLines that lead in a path to the subject Dorothea Lange

  • Make the photograph interestingDraw Attention to Your Subject Leading Lines Framing Rule of Thirds Framing

  • Draw attention to the subjectFramingObjects within the borders of the image frame the subject Arnold Newman

  • FramingObjects within the borders of the image frame the subject Manuel Alvarez-Bravo

  • FramingObjects within the borders of the image frame the subject Anne Geddes

  • Make the photograph interestingLook for patternsRadial DesignRepetitionRadial Design

  • Radial DesignObjects, shapes, lines, and/or colors radiate out from a central point in a circular pattern. Alfred Eisenstaedt

  • Radial DesignObjects, shapes, lines, and/or colors radiate out from a central point in a circular pattern. James Nachtwey

  • Make the photograph interestingLook for patternsRadial DesignRepetitionRepetition

  • Same shape, line, pattern, and/or color is repeated throughout the image.
