Recently I visited some friends in Budapest and walked through District 2 and 12, where I came across some architecture with strong contrast and striking geometry. It was those buildings that inspired Balance 2. With this project I pushed light and contrast 
to make the image more interesting and abstract. I think shape and space are integral to visually impressive design, so I was excited to experiment with the negative space that the buildings cut out of the sky and geometry.




There are two main techniques of balance: formal and informal. However, there are also other 
kinds of formal and informal techniques that photographers have been practicing to balance out lightness 
and heaviness, varying shapes, and even meanings behind a composition.
Conceptual balance is the more philosophical type of asymmetrical balance where two subjects complement each other
 and are different beyond size, shape and form. In many cases, conceptual balance is achieved in an image where there 
are two contrasting textures or meanings behind its subjects. That said, it is obviously harder to compose 
a conceptually balanced image as it usually takes more than just a tilt of the frame.



The project is dominated by geometry, parallels and continuing lines, hence most pictures can be paired up, 
and they make unique connections.
So I made a website, to play with it!
