Exercise: Balance


Some of these examinations seemed forced. That I had to push to make things fit. The balance’s show the motion of the image. The pull of the weights seems to affect the eye. In the other drawings there is a simplification of the image into its parts. I can see elements of balance in them too and some of the motion.

The weights and dominant sections have a relationship to the internal motion of the picture. They give direction and flow, or stillness.

Do we see these elements without thinking as we take photographs? Need to be aware of these things, try and add these levels to the act of looking through the viewfinder. It might be there anyway but good to be conscious of these things.
