The Bethadilly 52 Week 13 – Balance

as we enter week 13 of the bethadilly 52, i realize that we are 1/4 of the way through this project!  13 photos down, 39 more to go.  this week our photography concept is balance.  when i noticed our dog sitting ever so sweetly under our daughter’s high chair as she ate dinner, i couldn’t help but grab my camera to document this moment.  he often does this, as a way of half adoring her and half begging her for a little bit of something, anything.  because this moment between our baby and dog was so strong and i wanted to showcase it, i put a lot of thought into my composition.  when deciding what angle to photograph it from, i wanted to minimize the surroundings of our dining room and focus solely on them.  i decided to create balance in this image by framing them in the doorway that leads to our kitchen.  by framing them this way, i am allowing negative blank space to surround them with the fridge on the left and the wall on the right.  by doing this, i am bringing the viewer’s eye right to the subjects.  i also created balance with light, by showcasing my subjects in a brighter area and allowing the surrounding framed areas to fall to shadow.  having a good balance between light and shadow creates a very effective image.
