2. Create Balance
The importance of a well-balanced composition is an often-overlooked, but important part of a good composition. All of the elements in a composition should work together to create an image that is visually balanced. Balance your compositions by making sure one side of the image doesn’t contain overpowering elements that cause the side of the photo to be “too heavy.”
As with anything, there are exceptions to his rule. Sometimes breaking the balance for the sake of creating visual interest or tension is a good thing.
