Tuesday Turn About #148 Enjoying Spring

Are you enjoying spring in your neck of the woods? We are here in Delaware! My first cutting garden is sprouting and each day I see new growth!

There is so much hope to be found in spring and I for one am grateful!

Weekly Photography Tip

Whew, haven’t we gone over a lot in this series?? I hope you are learning, practicing, and enjoying these tips to improve your photography skills! If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments or send me an email via my contact page! I would love to help you with your photography problems!

You will start to notice that the tips section here on Tuesday Turn About will begin to be shorter. We had some ground to cover in the first few posts and I didn’t want to miss any details about shooting in manual mode and learning how to expose your images correctly.

Let’s continue to chat about composition. After covering the basics of composition like the rule of thirds, perspective, and leading lines, it’s a good idea to think about balance in an image.

Just as in decorating a room, balance in an image is important. Balance can be created by using color, texture, light/shadow, subject matter, and visual weight.

The same concepts apply to decorating, don’t you think? You wouldn’t want to place all of the furniture and home decor on one side of the room because it would look unbalanced.

The same with an image. When moving around the room and changing your perspectives, look through the viewfinder and make sure the scene appears balanced.

Here are a couple of questions to ask when viewing the scene through the viewfinder:

  • is one side of the image heavy with a color? or with a piece of furniture? or with shadow?
  • does the scene have empty spaces that throw the scene off balance? or does the empty space add balance?
  • is the visual weight evenly distributed in the scene?

Here is an excellent article to help you create visual balance in your images! Yay for continuing to learn and grow in our blogging adventure!

Now, let the party begin!
