52 Week Challenge: Week 17 / Apr 22nd – Composition: Balance

April 21st, 2019
Hey everyone,

Tomorrow, Monday April 22nd brings us into Week 17 of the Dogwood Photography 52 Week Challenge, and the theme for this week is:

Composition: Balance
Balanced composition is pretty straightforward, unless you are trying to shoot in the "Accidental Renaissance" style. So shoot a balanced image in the Accidental Renaissance style.

About the Compositional Eye category:
“In past challenges we have explored the rules of composition. This year we push the rules even further by using them in specific ways to train your compositional eye.”

Use the tag 52wc-2019-w17 when you’re uploading your images to 365, along with any of the following tags which are recommended on the Dogwood Photography challenge page here


And of course, do feel free to share your photos here in the comments.

Images tagged for Week 17 can be seen here

New to 365? Or just looking for a new challenge? Anyone can take part in the 52 Week Challenge and all are welcome – find out more and see the master list of themes for the year on our original discussion thread here

@northy the best article I found was from Buzzfeed because it explained why: https://www.buzzfeed.com/lynzybilling/19-photos-that-accidentally-look-like-renaissance-art

Visited Google and a few websites, took camera for a walk and actually got a golden ratio shot - with abit of cropping!! What a brilliant, but difficult, prompt. Don't think I'll ever manage that Fibonacci Spiral though.

ugh... i can't "see" the golden ration when i'm shooting! this was a challenge some months ago and it eluded me then... can't imagine i'm going to be any better at sorting it this go around!
