Chris Marquardt ... Balanced

Episode 1724 (1:11:39)

Chris Marquardt

Chris Marquardt is back and this week's new photographic concept is Balance. Balance is the perceived visual weight in the frame. If a photo is balanced, it will bring the image stability and harmony. It's the cousin of symmetry. A photo can be balanced, but not symmetrical. But a symmetrical photo is balanced. You can also add weight to an image with contrast, or where you place the subject in the image. 

Here are photos to go along with the concept of balance:

Our next photo assignment is - QUIET. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "QUIET" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "TGQUIET" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
