I originally put this collection together for my students for our primary science sessions, and will add to it as I row my boat around the coast of Great Britain. Ideal for students to use in their projects and presentations. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).

In this unit we explore composition and balance in images. To do this we investigate: • what is good composition in an image • the techniques used to achieve effective composition • visual weight • forms of balance: symmetric, asymmetrical, radial and mosaic • forms of symmetry: reflective, rotational, and translational • photographic balance: color, tonal and conceptual balance • the rule of thirds • improving balance using cropping in Photoshop. The concepts introduced will be for photographs, but they apply equally to any other visual medium – from painting to web pages.
