Portraiture and balance
Finding balance in a portrait can make all the difference in an exceptional image.
There are a number of ways to create the balance in a portrait. One method I like to use is to use the background as a way to create the balance. In this case it is the 2 windows to the side of the door. They are just evident and provide a framing point to the image.
Centering the subject allows this image to work well as a portrait. And because I’m shooting at f2.8, I can create a shallow depth of field- hence the blurred background.
When you take a picture, check your background as well- there maybe something there you can use to prove a framework to balance the image.
