Balanced Composition

bǽlənst kàmpəzɪ́ʃən
A balanced composition is a compositional choice in art in which the frame feels balanced. Different compositional aspects carry “weight,” for example brightness, color, and placement of the main subject. To create a balanced composition these things must be taken into consideration and distributed around the frame for a balanced feel. As with anything in art, a composition does not have to be balanced, but it’s a good idea to understand what this means so you can make a conscious decision whether to use a balanced or an unbalanced composition.
