Fitting the Frame: Positioning.
This glass jar has great attraction, its visually appealing, has lots of texture as a result of its imperfections, and imparts character and interest to a range of scenes. The sequence of shots (1-4) give some hint of these attributes and the possibilities of framing a subject, any subject, to reveal interesting perspectives and context.
The second sequence of images (5-8) illustrate the positioning of a subject within a scene. Centrally positioned (5) the subject appears…static. Of course, it actually IS static(!) but the scene lacks any suggestion of life, or movement. It seems “lifeless”. Compared to images (6) and (8) where the chair is positioned low and to the right, where the chair is facing into the scene, facing the sun, “looking” at the sun. It gives an impression of activity, even though there is nothing present to act.
Of the sequence (5-8) 8 seems the most appealing. The horizontal lines provide an indication of depth and differentiation between near, far, and infinity, the chair looks “in” to the scene, and to the left, toward the sun (I wonder what it would like like looking toward the right, away from the sun? I’ll add that later!).
