Ok so after a quick rant on the war and revolution that is coming in photography click bait, this week’s podcast focuses in on balance. As we have discussed many times on this podcast, balance is something that is important when thinking about images while behind the camera. However, this week, we are focusing on the importance of balance, or lack of balance, in the final image.

Balance is about visual harmony and understanding of the frame. It is achieved several ways, but for most photographs, it is about how color, shape, form, space and design elements interact together. This week we focus on some of the central aspects of balance among those various aspects and how they can be used to move an image out of balance or into balance.
