In many of my composition posts, I talk about using the "Rule of Thirds" and the "Fibonacci Spiral" to create dynamic photography. Which at its root suggests that placing your work in the very center of the photo is undesired.
However - to EVERY rule there are (many) Beautiful Exceptions!
This shop from Kim Westad is the perfect example of one of those exceptions:
Why does this work?
- The items are gorgeous (this helps a great deal)
- They are placed on a gradient background (fades from white to dark gray)
- The white balance / color balance is spot-on (white and off-white are distinguishable)
- The highlights reflected in each piece encourages your eye to scan the whole photo
