Round 39 Reveals – Ratio

October 23, 2023

Golden Ratio

This round we through an extra challenge at the Scavengers. One word for all categories, but with 9 different composition tools/rules/guidelines.

The golden ratio is the subtle cousin to leading lines. In this case the spiral is based on a specific ratio. It can both guide the in to a subject at the center of the spiral, or out to take in the entire scene. Sometimes the spiral is obvious – but in can be an effective way to make busy scenes feel more … directed for lack of a better word. It can take more effort to compose, but the care is rewarding.
