    1. Principles of Art and Design Building an Interesting Photograph

    2. Principles of Art and Design • Balance • Proportion • Repetition • Movement • Contrast • Emphasis • Variety • Unity

    3. Principles of Art and Design • Balance:

    4. Principles of Art and Design • Balance: a condition in which opposing forces are equal to each other, equality between the totals of the two sides of an account, or an orderly and artistic arrangement of elements that is pleasing.

    5. Principles of Art and Design • Balance • The equal distribution of visual weight in an artwork. • Symmetrical Balance • Asymmetrical Balance • Radial Balance

    6. Chuck Close Symmetrical Balance

    7. Chuck Close Symmetrical Balance When one half of an art work mirrors the other, or has equal weight on each side. AKA “Formal” Symmetry. Often seen in graphic design, symbols, and logos

    8. John Divola, Natural Reductions, 1987-89 Asymmetrical Balance

    9. John Divola, Natural Reductions, 1987-89 Asymmetrical Balance Asymmetry means without symmetry. Meaning that there are no mirror images in a composition. AKA “Informal” Symmetry. Where does your attention goes when you look at an image? If it seems to wander around more or less evenly, there is probably balance. A small visually interesting object can balance a much larger less interesting object.

    10. Radial Balance

    11. Radial Balance A design in which the elements radiate from the center. Eirik Johnston Animal Holes 2005

    12. Proportion

    13. Proportion How big or small something is, in relation to something else. Angela BuenningFilo Advertising Barge, San Francisco Bay 2000

    14. Repetition

    15. Repetition A pattern created by repeating elements regularly or irregularly. Mitch Epstien Green Mountain Wind Farm, Fluvana, Texas 2005 70 x 92 inches from American Power

    16. Repetition Formal Repetition

    17. Repetition Formal repetition is repeating an element regularly. Charles C. Ebberts Lunch atop a Skyscraper New York, NY 1932

    18. Repetition Informal repetition

    19. Repetition Informal repetition is repeating a design without a regular pattern. Eirik Johnston Border Lands 2005

    20. Repetition Progressive Repetition

    21. Repetition Progressive repetition is repeating an element with small changes each time. Mitch Epstien Green Mountain Wind Farm, Fluvana, Texas 2005 70 x 92 inches from American Power

    22. Movement

    23. Movement The illusion of motion. The path that our eye follows as we look at a piece of art Gregory Crewdson Brief Encounter 1990
