UN­DER­STAND­ING COM­PO­SI­TION

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Get­ting to grips with com­po­si­tion is vi­tal to the struc­tural strength of de­sign. Com­po­si­tion is not just a stand­alone term that sim­ply de­scribes an ar­range­ment of forms and shapes. In­stead, re­alise that com­po­si­tion is per­spec­tive, value, stag­ing and colour ar­ranged har­mo­niously, to tell the story or idea more ef­fi­ciently.

Per­spec­tive is the place­ment of the cam­era and what type of lens is be­ing used. Value trans­lates the ap­pli­ca­tion of light­ing. Stag­ing is the ar­range­ment of dif­fer­ent el­e­ments in the can­vas us­ing the com­bi­na­tion of shapes, sizes and over­laps, cre­at­ing depth, di­men­sion and bal­ance. Colour is the har­mony of pal­ettes and tem­per­a­tures.
