Photo Composition for Better Photography
Notes from the Web
The human eye is attracted
to some elements more than others. The attractive elements are called
dominate elements. Evaluating the visual importance of eye-catching
elements is based on the following principles:
- Large/Small -
large elements draw more attention than small.
- sharpness draws more attention than blur.
- light draws more attention than darkness.
- difference draws more attention than similarity.
- Warm/cool - warm
colors draw more attention than cool.
- jagged or sharp lines draw more attention than curved or smooth
- Rough/Smooth -
rough texture draws more attention than smooth.
to unity because one main idea or feature is emphasized and other
elements are subordinate to it.
