Chris Marquardt ... Balanced

Chris Marquardt

Episode 1724

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:
