This is more of a bonus video, but the content is still very important. Get a quick but thorough primer on compositional and aesthetic fundamentals. Explore symmetry, asymmetry, unequal spacing, static spacing, visual hierarchy, visual texture, minimalism, maximalism, compositional framing, and more.
- Now what I want to do here…is throw kind of a bonus video at you.…I want to share nine important principles of aesthetics,…things that are really worth considering…every time you're arranging various objects…and materials and whatever for a scanned image.…Okay, number one, there's good old symmetry,…so how about composing your scene with a nice look…of symmetrical balance, especially if you're aiming…for a no-nonsense and straight-to-the-point presentation?…And if hints of playfulness and action,…if they're more in line with what you're after,…then maybe go more free-form and more asymmetrical.…
And speaking of asymmetry, there's the concept…of unequal spacing, so you see the differences…around the old, rusty bolt in this space?…I call this dynamic spacing, and it's a means…of adding a sense of energy to compositions.…And if a less overt sense of energy is your goal,…then limit the sense of differences around an object.…So this placement is a bit more static with different spaces…above and below and equal spacing on either side.…
