Research Post 2 – Composition

I found an article online that is important for my image as it explains the importance of composition.

The article states that  “Composition can be defined as a means of selecting appropriate elements and arranging them within the picture space to communicate the artist’s ideas, and feelings effectively to the viewer.” This shows the importance of composition as it communicates certain messages. If the image doesn’t have the right composition, the messages and meaning behind it can be interpreted in a totally different way than intended. The article states that for an image to be effective it must combine both forms and space in order to have good composition and to give a meaningful message. Careful planning and thought needs to go into an image’s composition for the messages being communicated to be received well. Composition is important for my image because everything needs to be placed where the viewer can receive the message effectively.
