This is a critique of a fellow class mate, Matt Delorme, on our first assignment in our Productions I class
Symmetrically Balanced Photo:
When only focusing on the lines made by the walls, ceiling, and floor, the photo does appear to be symmetrical. Focusing on the doors, however, the photo isn’t has symmetrical. If the doors were directly across from each other, then the entire photo would be symmetrical.
This photo is a good demonstration of asymmetry. The figure draws more attention to the left of the image than the right.
The eyes of the figure line up with the top horizontal line of the Rule of Thirds. There is also a respectable amount of head room.
The figure’s right eye lines up with the intersecting corner of the Rule of Thirds.
Balance with Weight Gaze:
The photo would be have a weighted balance if the figure was either looking to the left of the photo or if the figure was on the left side of the photo looking right. This photo cannot be balanced because the figure is doing neither of these.
