0.2.1 Framing and Relative Proportions of Elements

this topic is in progress:

A circle (A) surrounded by smaller circles appears to be smaler then exact same circle (B) surrounde by larger circles.

A full moon hanging low just above a city's skyline or some trees makes it look huge.

 Zooming in by framing the moon and trees together, narrows the focus and makes the elements in the composition proportionally bigger.

Result: The nearby reference objects make the composition bigger -> big moon.

 Zooming in on the setting is limited. When the framed area getís more and more compact the trees and the moon start to fall out of the composition. One has to choose to close down on wicht focus area.


Result: When there are no nearby reference objects to align the moon with, zoming in is limited -> small moon.


The purpose of this site is to present questions and new ideas about the above subjects.
