PICTURE composition : Positioning HORIZONS | PHOTOGRAPHY

PICTURE composition : Positioning HORIZONS | PHOTOGRAPHY | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"Horizons can be quite divisive, both in terms of composition and opinion.  If used correctly, a horizon will either add to a composition or go unnoticed, however, if positioned poorly, it can become a competing element, distracting attention away from the main areas of interest.

One of the main ‘rules’ you often see written regarding horizons is that they should never be placed in the centre of the frame, but positioned closer to a ‘third’.  As with most rules, there are plenty of times when this can be completely disregarded, so here are a few guidelines to help you to decide where to position the horizon when composing your shot. [...]"

Monica MIRZA's insight:

So many times have I heard about rules to obey as for locating horizon lines on a picture (never in the middle, so 'they' say...) that most of these times, their uttering made me feel like disobeying ;)

Awesome effects may definitely result from catching the line either low [as I've done here : https://picsnprints.wordpress.com/2012/09/08/electrique/ ] or high...

Yet capturing it right in the middle of a picture may help the photographer achieve his goal as well.

It'll be your choice : as long as  he keeps on materialising his own look -targeting the aim he's chosen- the horizon line rule is one that a photographer may do without :o)

La “révolution de la photographie numérique” est loin d’être achevée. L’étape la plus récente de l’évolution des pratiques est aussi la plus décisive. Nous assistons à un changement en profondeur du paradigme photographique, particulièrement visible à travers les usages communicants et conversationnels de l’image." André Gunthert.
