Nature is always a box of surprising elements that comes in different shapes, forms, patterns and colours. From the hexagons of a honeycomb to the spirals of a seashell and the branching veins of a leaf, you will find harmony all throughout nature.
To be a successful photographer, you have to align and frame all those things. And in wildlife photography, there are endless opportunities to do so.
To be perfectly harmonious means that all parts of the artwork relate to each other and complement each other.
Understanding the idea of harmony in visual arts might be challenging. For showing harmony in an image, all the visual elements should be pulled together and create a whole.
Harmony is pretty hard to achieve and needs a lot of practice. Balance plays an important role here. To balance out visual elements means maintaining the composition's stability so that it remains steady and has the right proportions.
As an admirer of art, I always look for moments in different forms and shapes.
Sometimes luck, hard work and dedication pay off and I get the desired shot. And sometimes, you have to open the bag of your tricks to get unique shots.
Nevertheless, I always tried to understand the chemistry of wild species. Knowing them to such a great extent has always provided me with sightings that I never thought that I could have ever experienced.
However, the interactions and moments I saw most of the time with my naked eye could have never been captured as sometimes watching them without a distraction of lens is a more pleasurable experience.
This photo series portrays some of the most beautiful aspects of "Balance with Harmony" from a composition perspective and will eventually take you to the scene of the unseen.
