Week 12 of 52 – Centred Composition

This week our assignment from Clickin Moms was to make use of a centred subject. There are a number of reasons why you would want to use a centred composition, rather than sticking with rule of thirds composition; to reinforce symmetry, emphasize shape, draw attention to the subject, or demonstrate calm.

I was shooting at my nephew Cole’s first birthday, so I definitely wasn’t going for calm!

Here is my submission for the week.

Warily, checking out the bunny that showed up.

The bunny looked like she had fallen on hard times, but lots of the kids were still into it.

Still not sure what to think. I get it, Cole.

This is why the rest of the cake shots are in B&W…I have no idea how to decrease the red colour cast by the tablecloth.

  1. I like how well you framed your nephew in your submitted photo. But I love the photo below, of your son — the color, the way the people are all neatly at the top edge of the frame, and the perspective. It’s eye-catching, I think, because the looking down perspective makes the subject look smaller, but the centered composition makes the subject look bigger, more important.
