Monday Muse - On Complexity


Complexity in an image captures the eye with layers of interest, with at least one layer providing the primary action. As in a stage set, a complex image requires a foreground, middle ground, and background, the goal being to capture interest in all three layers. There is no control on the street other than setting oneself in a position where something might occur, most likely not, making a complex layered image is more a waiting game of opportunity, than an action sport. While it’s considered fortunate to capture a frame or two in a normal street session, to capture one complex layered image…is a success.
